Home Sweet Creek

With your support and involvement, we're working to protect Knitting Mill Creek and create a global model for eco-minded living.

In the EcoDistrict, we're restoring Knitting Mill Creek’s wetlands by reducing runoff pollution and increasing public access to the water. Join us as we create a sense of belonging for everyone – including our most vulnerable communities – and connect people with nature.
