Goose Creek Association

Specific Need

Our work is on-going and as we continue to protect and preserve the Goose Creek Watershed,  we strive to train new stream monitors, plant trees in riparian buffer areas and educate landowners and the public about the importance of our watershed.  We also advocate for the protection of the watershed, land and historic attributes of the surrounding area.

Mission

The Goose Creek Association protects and preserves the natural resources, open space, historic heritage, and rural quality of life within the Goose Creek watershed.

 

Founded in 1970 to fight the discharge of sewage effluent into Goose Creek, today the Goose Creek Association is involved in a number of critical issues on both the local and state levels to maintain and improve the quality of the Goose Creek watershed through:

  • Maintenance and improvement of stream water quality in the Goose Creek watershed through stream monitoring and riparian buffers.
  • Advocacy of conservation easements and purchase of development rights programs in both Loudoun and Fauquier.
  • Support of the designation of historic rural villages and preservation of farmland in Loudoun and Fauquier.
  • Protection of rural roads through the formation of Cromwell’s Run and Little River Historic Districts in Fauquier County and the Beaverdam Creek Historic Roadways District in Loudoun County.

The Association is committed to an assessment of the status of and protecting and preserving the entire Goose Creek watershed, which covers much of Loudoun and Fauquier counties.
