Enhancing the water quality, stream restoration, and preservation
of natural resources within the Little Conestoga Creek Watershed.

The Little Conestoga Watershed Alliance (LCWA) is a non-profit Pennsylvania organization, founded in October 2000. We are a group of citizens, businesses, non-profit conservation organizations, academic institutions, and local, state and federal government representatives that have joined together and are committed to a common purpose.

Through grants and volunteers, the LCWA has become a reality. We have several sites around Lancaster in different stages of restoration and have proposals for many more. Our goals are to enhance the watershed for its citizens and environment. We will do this through education, volunteer action, and cooperation with local citizens, governments and corporations, in order to achieve a healthy watershed.

Objectives of LCWA:

  • Educating citizens regarding water quality and land stewardship
  • Educational seminars/stream studies
  • Involvement of municipal leaders
  • Restoration of streams
  • Assisting agricultural professionals with fencing and water management
  • Becoming incorporated
  • Establishing bylaws
  • Applying for grants
  • Use of native plants in restorations projects
