The mission of the Gills Creek Watershed Association is to restore and protect the Gills Creek Watershed by uniting citizens, government, organizations, and business.

Wine For Water 2017

Celebrate our planet and our local creeks on Wednesday, April 19th, from 6-8:30pm with local watershed organizations for good food, wine and a silent auction.

Join Gills Creek, Rocky Branch and Smith Branch watershed associations at Columbia's Senate's End to celebrate our vision for the streams and rivers that we have pledged to preserve! Enjoy food from local restaurants, wines from around the world and great deals at the silent auction from local donors. Make a toast to Earth Day from the deck overlooking the Congaree River, and support healthy waterways!

Wine for Water will benefit the watershed associations, environmental non-profits dedicated to restoring the Midlands' watersheds through education, grassroots action, and public and private partnerships.

Tickets for the event are $35 for association members and $45 for non-members, with a special ticket and membership package for $65. Contact Erich Miarka at 803-727-8326 with any questions and sponsorship opportunities.

The Gills Creek Watershed is among the largest impaired urban watersheds in South Carolina, and contains over 70 miles of streams and lakes, and 47,000 acres of land. The watershed is included in the cities of Columbia, Cayce, Forest Acres, and Arcadia Lakes; Richland County, and the US Army's Fort Jackson.

The watershed's headwaters start above Sesquicentennial State Park and flow into the Congaree River just above the Congaree Swamp National Park.

The Gills Creek Watershed Association is dedicated to restoring the watershed through education, grass roots action, public and private partnerships, remediation projects, and controlled development.

The goal is to return the Gills Creek Watershed to a living resource providing recreational opportunities, habitat for native wildlife and plants, and a national model for watershed planning and management.

You can participate by joining the Association, becoming active in the Association's initiatives, spreading the word to your friends, neighbors and co-workers, and promoting the Association and its vision to your elected officials.
