Tinker's Creek Watershed Partners (TCWP) is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) watershed organization officially established in 2006. The Tinker’s Creek watershed drains 96.4 square miles and spans 24 communities in Cuyahoga, Summit, Portage, and Geauga counties. Tinker’s Creek is the largest tributary to the Cuyahoga River. In 2019 Tinker’s Creek Watershed Partners added the Brandywine Creek watershed to its conservation efforts adding another 26 square miles of watershed.
TCWP has been involved in many projects throughout the watershed including stream restorations and stormwater control measure projects. We provide assistance with community stormwater programs, training opportunities on watershed management practices for landowners and municipal workers, and we provide assistance in the preservation and protection of critical areas for habitat, biodiversity, and resilience.
We provide educational workshops such as rain barrel workshops. Our volunteer opportunities for the community include tree plantings, stream cleanups, virtual and in-person hikes, invasive plant pulls, water quality monitoring, and rain garden education and maintenance.
