Bowman's Creek Watershed Association

The people of Noxen and its surrounding areas are committed not only to restoring our past, but to protecting our environment for the future.  The Bowman's Creek Watershed Association provides a strategic conservation plan based on community input.

A watershed is an area of land from which all rain or snowmelt runs off to a common stream or body of water.  Bowman's Creek is the common stream in the area that "collects" all of the small tributary streams, whose origins on top of the surrounding mountains and hilltops marks the boundaries of the watershed.  In this way, the creek ultimately drains an entire area of land.  The BCWA employs the scientific approach that says that earth's forests, streams, wildlife and other resources are best managed at the level of whole watersheds.
