Serving Knox and Surrounding Counties Since 2000
The Owl Creek Conservancy is a private nonprofit organization of volunteers dedicated to conserving natural and agricultural lands in the Knox County Area through widespread private action. We work with landowners for the public good to maintain and to improve the quality of life now and in the future by conserving farmlands, stream corridors, aquifer- and watershed-protection areas, wildlife habitats, woodlands, scenic vistas, and ecologically sensitive areas of environmental, historic, and community importance.

The Owl Creek Conservancy is honored to have received the Environmental Sustainability Award for 2015. The award, given for introducing or promoting sustainable practices into the operations of an organization, was sponsored by Kenyon College and presented at the Knox County Chamber of Commerce annual awards dinner January 8, 2016. The award was accompanied by a commendation from Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted; a Certificate of Special Congressional Recognition from Congressman Bob Gibbs, and a certificate of recognition from Governor John Kasich.
