WHO WE ARE
OUR GUIDING PRINCIPLES & OBJECTIVES
“A thing is right when it tends to preserve the integrity, stability and beauty of the biotic community. It is wrong when it tends otherwise.” Aldo Leopold
The Lake Creek Greenway Partnership is a 501(c)(3) tax exempt non-profit corporation formed to promote initiatives that preserve the quality of Lake Creek and surrounding areas. Our emphasis is on enlisting the support of the community to protect water quality and other ecological services for the benefit of current and future generations.
We believe that it is not sufficient to simply preserve lands, but that it is critical that landowners, residents and businesses understand how, properly managed, these lands can provide health, recreational and commercial benefits for area residents and businesses, while reducing the costs of maintaining water quality and restoring flood damage.
The question is not whether the population of Montgomery County will grow, but rather how it will grow and how we work together to build a community where business, residents, nature and recreational opportunities are integrated to support each other. This can only happen from the ground up by working together.
OUR MISSION: To promote an appreciation, understanding and respect for our natural world through education and stewardship of Lake Creek Watershed.
OUR VISION: To live in a community where residents understand and respect their connection to the land, water, and nature in general.
IN SUPPORT OF OUR MISSION:
1. Develop hiking, nature viewing and educational experiences within Lake Creek Watershed.
2. Develop educational programs and facilities that utilize features and issues related to the Lake Creek bottomlands.
3. Assist in identifying lands that are candidates for acquisition or conservation
