About Us

The Ellerbe Creek Watershed Association envisions a living creek connecting human and natural communities in Durham.

    To achieve our vision, ECWA will:

    - Enable a living creek - a healthy stream in which an appropriately diverse group of native fish and invertebrate species thrive.  

    -Create a network of preserves and trails along which people can hike, bike, and walk from the Ellerbe Creek headwaters to Falls Lake.

    - Build ties among Durham's diverse neighborhoods and communities using Ellerbe Creek as a link.

    - Partner with the City and other groups that seek to move Durham to become a regional model for proactive urban stormwater management. 

    - Help adults, and especially kids, have the opportunity to enjoy and appreciate being outdoors in a learning and safe environment.
