The education of our next generation is fundamental to the continued restoration and protection of Clearfield Creek. The youth of the area must be inspired to protect and improve their waterways, as well as learning how our stream became so polluted. By providing outdoor recreation opportunities for youth CCWA has inspired many future fisherman, and hopefully conservationist. In addition, CCWA has supported many education initiatives for youth and adults to learn about the formation and treatment of AMD. These efforts will ensure that new volunteers, and professionals continue the clean-up and protection of the Clearfield Creek.
