Since 1995, the Mud Creek Conservancy (MCC) has permanently protected 35 acres of natural habitat in the Mud Creek watershed. This was accomplished through donations of conservation easements or acquisition of parcels containing ecologically sensitive land with high conservation value. The majority of this acreage lies in or abuts the Mud Creek floodplain and serves to protect critical riparian habitat.
To date, easement and land donations have been the primary mechanism by which MCC has been able to protect land in the Mud Creek Valley. Concerned citizens living in the area have taken notice of the importance to forever preserve the aesthetic beauty, ecological services, and wildlife habitat provided by the valley and have worked with MCC to achieve that preservation.
If you find yourself asking what you can do to help achieve our mission of preserving the valley, we offer many ways to get involved. To learn more about our easements and the details of what they mean for land owners, visit our Protect Land page. You can always reach out to us directly through our Contact Us form.
NOTE: MCC easements are located on private property and
trespassing is prohibited. Please contact MCC for any educational or site visit requests.
