About the Flint Creek Watershed Partnership
Flint Creek Watershed Partnership is a partnership that operates with Citizens for Conservation, Inc., (CFC) a Barrington area nonprofit conservation group founded in 1971, as its fiscal agent, www.citizensforconservation.org.
Flint Creek Watershed Partnership’s goal is to educate while building partnerships for projects to improve water quality, reduce flooding, and preserve and restore wetlands, prairies, and other natural features for future generations. Funding for the Flint Creek Watershed-Based Plan was provided, in part, by the Governor of Illinois and the Illinois Environment Protection Agency through Section 319 of the Clean Water Act.
Additional funding was provided by Barrington Area Council of Governments, Barrington Area Development Council, Barrington Hills Conservation Trust, Citizens for Conservation, the Townships of Barrington and Cuba, and the Villages of Barrington, Barrington Hills, Hawthorn Woods, Lake Barrington, Lake Zurich and North Barrington.
