    Organizaton: The Mill Creek Alliance

    The Mill Creek Alliance (the Alliance) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation formed in March 2018 through the merger of two successful conservation organizations; The Mill Creek Watershed Council of Communities and Groundwork Cincinnati-Mill Creek. The mission of the Alliance is to empower Mill Creek communities to protect and enhance the value of the Mill Creek, its tributaries, and watershed. Through inclusive, meaningful community engagement and collaborative action, the Alliance strives to create a Mill Creek watershed that is a healthy ecosystem where thriving people and communities live, work, and play.


    The Alliance’s wide-ranging skill sets allow it to provide holistic solutions to many of the problems faced by our constituent communities. Our multi-faceted approach includes watershed action planning, project implementation, watershed-scale research and monitoring, and creating opportunities to explore the watershed through recreation and volunteer events. In addition, the Alliance recognizes that environmental justice work requires a special focus on underserved communities. In those communities, the Alliance focuses on uplifting our communities’ youth, environmental education, restoration of the river and its natural resources, planting trees and edible gardens, building trails, and providing a source of Green Jobs. The Alliance seeks to transform neglected land and waterways into assets that underserved neighborhoods need to be healthy and resilient while building community capacity.
