Land conservation and protection is an immediate goal of the Conservancy. We see an urgent need to protect integral pieces of the Watershed. Our Watershed is disappearing at alarming rates and the protection that was once afforded to our streams is threatened. The population growth in Montgomery County (a portion of the Perkiomen Creek Watershed) was 678,111 people in 1990 with a projected growth to 744,900 people in 2010. This growth affects our open spaces, turning farmlands and woodlands into houses with roads and driveways. By paving over crucial groundwater recharge areas we are sending large volumes of stormwater into our streams. It is our goal to focus on critical environmental areas and protect them through easements and fee simple acquisition.
We want to hear from you:
It is critical that we include local knowledge about the area and its features/resources, as well as topics of concern expressed by local residents.
Please help the effort by recording the information/concerns on this form and sending it to:
