Organizations Filed Purposes: The Association's mission is to achieve healthy watershed and clean waters in central Arizona for the benefit of people and wildlife through protection, restoration, education and advocacy.

Notable achievements in the 2019FY toward the organizations purpose included Prescott Creeks work with the AZ Dept. of Environmental Quality (ADEQ) to continue planning and implementing surface water quality improvements in the Granite Creek Watershed. Previously awarded funding from ADEQ was implemented to construct a publicly accessible bathroom on Miller Creek. During the 2019FY, Prescott Creeks selected a pre-cast concrete building and began working through permitting issues with the local jurisdiction and scheduled the building for completion in February/March 2019. Informal partnerships with Prescott Audubon Society continued in the 2019FY to both continue bird monitoring begun during the Watson Woods Riparian Preserve Restoration Project (ca. 2008-2013) and to monitor nest boxes installed to support both American kestrels and wood ducks. The Prescott Creeks In-Lieu-Fee Mitigation Program continued within the Preserve to with furtherance of development plans and initial efforts to establish a conservation easement for the property which will protection conservation values there in perpetuity. With the Preserves lease agreement maturing in 2020, Prescott Creeks and the City of Prescott continued to explore renewal options. Educational efforts and opportunities during the year supported the above projects and the organizations mission of achieving healthy watershed and clean waters in central Arizona. Social media continued to be an avenue for Outreach with a decreased emphasis on traditional print publications. Presentations were made to both local groups and regional audiences. The annual Granite Creek Cleanup drew approximately 500 volunteers (up 34% from the previous year) to remove trash from local creeks. The 1.41 tons of trash collected represent a 14% increase in collections trash from the previous year. This continued the downward collections over thirteen years. For a fifth year, Prescott Creeks partnered with Yavapai Big Brothers Big Sisters, and new partner, Friends of the Verde River to produce a silent auction at the Tilted Earth Festival in Cornville, AZ an event which has drawn over ~10,000 people from around the state. The event also featured presentation of Prescott Creeks Rambling River water table.
