The Oak Creek Watershed, that is.  Fifty miles of fresh water perpetually in motion, Oak Creek is the thread that weaves together the fabric of our watershed community, as well as being vital to its economic, recreational and natural future.

by Steven R. Estes

Improving or enhancing the health of a watershed the size of the one with which we are blessed is a tall order by anyone’s estimation. Throughout the west, streams and rivers typically run through very large parcels of either public or private land.

The objective of the Oak Creek Community Outreach Program (OCCOP) is to raise the awareness level, particularly of those living or recreating in the proximity of Oak Creek, regarding the consequences to littering and pollution, as well as changing the outdoor behavior of all visitors to Oak Creek.

Purpose of this Report: 

At the request of Barry Allan, Executive Director of the Oak Creek Watershed Council, I have prepared a brief geological report dealing with hydrological concerns of lower Oak Creek Canyon. It is to be presented to a joint meeting with USFS and ADOT personnel and Barry Allan of OCWC at 9:30 am at the Sedona Ranger Station, May 29, 2012.
