Adopt A Creek

“Adopt a Creek” is a way to involve individuals, groups and community as a way to engage people and the Rancocas Creek. Adopt a Creek is directly modeled on the Access Funds “Adopt a Crag” program of community engagement that enhances public access and conserves climbing areas.

Adopt a Creek recognizes the value of people and vounteers as part of the water trail. Adopt a Creek is a narrative and vocabulary of people.

Adopt a Creek is an innovative way to enhance public access along the Rancocas and promote water quality. Adopt a Creek helps paddlers and non-paddlers alike to gain interest in weather conditions, time of the observation, tide, water levels (in non-tidal areas), wildlife, herons, hawks, eagles, owls, birds, turtles, snakes, fishes, frogs, mussels, flowers, etc… Basically Adopt A Creek is a general narrative of your experiences on the Rancocas Creek.

Adopt a Creek anchors “Leave No Trace” principles and maintaining a good relationship w communities along the Creek. Where actions speak louder then words in a collaborative manor. Take nothing put pictures, leave nothing but a wake behind. Individuals form the mosaic of that which is the ecological fabric and heritage quilt of the Rancocas Creek’s 360 square mile watershed.
