The Creekside Conservancy is a land conservation and environmental education outreach organization based in the headwaters of Scatter Creek in the Chehalis Watershed of Western Washington State. It is also a group of dedicated individuals committed to enhancing the environmental health of our region and the world.

Creekside Conservancy is applying for a RCO SRFB (Salmon Recovery Funding Board) Surf Board Grant to acquire a small but integral 6.5 acre property that is located directly between two existing Creekside Conservancy properties. This will be a key piece to a larger project with the Thurston Conservation District to return the land to a responsive, restorative wetland complex to support the headwaters of ScatterCreek, the Chehalis River Basin and the ecology of the South County area and beyond.

We look forward to meeting you and sharing Creekside’s exciting story and to answer any questions you might have.

Aimee Richardson: Board Member & long-term Volunteer
As a Tenino community member – I have the privilege to live next to some of the Creekside-protected lands and have invested my time and energy over the last 16 years to support and love this essential biome. Working towards ethical, equitable, and restorative shifts in the way we as humans effect and interact with the ecological communities we inhabit is paramount. Weaving those pathways through collaboration is key.

Chanele Holbrook: long-term Volunteer – previous Director
I’ve spent my life’s work building Creekside Conservancy goals, creating long-term partnerships throughout the Chehalis Basin, developing successful conservation plans, and implementing restoration projects. Over two decades Creekside acquired an additional 600 acres throughout the Scatter Creek watershed to increase the covered properties to over 1200 acres all on mainstem waterways. Leaving a legacy is important to me and critical to the region.
