The White Clay Creek Watershed Steering Committee is made up of local citizens, representatives of conservation organizations and other interested parties, and delegates from state and local governments, including all 13 watershed municipalities. The National Park Service provides staff to help link the Committee to other agencies and the public, and it also provides technical and financial support.

The Steering Committee meets quarterly to get project updates from our Restoration, Education, and Open Space Committees, as well as updates about watershed projects from the White Clay Creek Watershed Management Plan Coordinator and the National Park Service River Manager. All meetings are open to the public and we welcome your support.
