Sugar Valley Watershed Association



The Sugar Valley Watershed Association (SVWA) is a Pennsylvania Non-Profit organization comprised primarily of citizens living in or near Sugar Valley, a two-mile wide by twenty-mile long limestone valley surrounded by sandstone ridges along the southern edge of Clinton County, PA.

Our area of stewardship encompasses the lands draining into Big Fishing Creek, from its headwaters beyond the eastern edge of Greene Township, to the western boundary of Logan Township.

This stretch of High Quality designated waters flows through a predominantly farming community populated by many of the same families that farmed the land when it was carved out of Centre County in 1839. Beginning in the early 1970s, the valley鈥檚 high quality soils attracted Amish families from Lancaster, who now own a significant number of farms in the valley.

The southern end of the Association鈥檚 boundaries include trophy trout waters considered by some internationally known sportsmen鈥檚 organizations to be among the top ten streams in the country.

Mission

We encourage wise land use through Best Management Practices, (BMP), engage in activities to protect and enhance open space and natural areas in the watershed, and provide opportunities for the enjoyment of these natural areas.
