The Ellerbe Creek Watershed Association (ECWA) is a nonprofit working to restore a healthy, living creek that connects people and nature in Durham. They protected their first six acres in 1999. Since then, they have acquired more than 450 acres, including five nature preserves that we manage for public recreation, water quality, and native plant and habitat restoration.  

The Ellerbe Creek watershed, which has been on the list of North Carolina's most polluted water bodies since 1998, remains a vital source of clean drinking water for more than half a million people. That's why they have been working since 1999 to protect and restore the land within our watershed. They engage the neighborhoods around Durham's creeks to join us in advocating for our community's most vital natural resource: our water.

The vision of the ECWA is a protected corridor from downtown Durham to Falls Lake.

Come join your fellow alumni on an autumn Saturday morning to learn more about the crucial work of the EWCA and to help remove invasive plants and trash from one of the five nature preserves managed by the EWCA. We can do our part to help keep our water clean and our natural areas beautiful and accessible for the community.
