What are the benefits of becoming a member of the Owl Creek Conservancy? 

Other than the obvious warm fuzzy feelings you get by doing something good for future generations,  when you become actively involved in our conservation efforts, you help play a vital role in protecting Ohio’s natural heritage.

By becoming a member of the Owl Creek Conservancy you can ...

Make a direct impact:

  • Joining us allows you to make a tangible difference in protecting our natural areas. Your involvement directly contributes to the preservation of farmlands, wildlife habitats and prime hunting grounds, ensuring they remain intact for future generations to enjoy.  Also by becoming a member, you’ll join a community of like-minded individuals who share your passion for the environment. 

Learn or do something educational:

  • Every year we host fun events about topics that are near and dear to our hearts.  From watching the Chimney Swifts fly in at dusk, helping keep the Kokosing River clean, sampling wine at a local winery or participating in Earth Day activities, there is something everyone can enjoy!  As a member, you’ll also gain access to valuable resources and learning experiences that will deepen your understanding of conservation issues.

Have volunteering opportunities:

  • Several times a year we host events and welcome the community's involvement in keeping our communities clean and litter free.  We have adopted two miles of highway along one of our conservation easements and take great pride in keeping this section of SR95 free of debris and litter.   We also team up with students from Mount Vernon High's Key Club and players from the MVNU Women's Basketball team during their annual 'River Rally' to help keep the Kokosing River beautiful.  Volunteering allows you to actively contribute to conservation efforts while gaining hands-on experience in environmental stewardship.

Gain a sense of fulfillment:

  • Knowing that your membership dues, volunteer efforts, and advocacy contributions directly support our land conservation initiatives can provide a profound sense of fulfillment and purpose. Your involvement makes a meaningful difference in safeguarding Knox County and surrounding areas for future generations.

Help us make a positive impact on keeping Knox County, Ohio's countryside beautiful and rural. By becoming actively involved in our conservation efforts, you play a vital role in protecting Ohio's natural heritage and ensuring a sustainable future for all.
