Hickory Creek Watershed
The Southwest Michigan Planning Commission (SWMPC) and the Village of Stevensville hosted a meeting on September 30, 2010 to discuss the water and habitat quality of Hickory Creek and what can be done to improve it. The group has formed a partnership of interested citizens, county and state agencies, non-profit organizations and the townships, cities and villages who have land or an interest in the Hickory Creek Watershed.
The Partnership is open to anyone that is interested. If you are interested and want to be involved, please contact Marcy Hamilton at firstname.lastname@example.org.

On August 3rd, 2013 there was a Hickory Creek Community Festival in Stevensville, MI. This event was hosted by Miss Stevensville and the Court and the Hickory Creek Watershed Partnership. We had a creek clean up where volunteers picked up trash from Hickory Creek. We also had free well water testing, activities for kids, and information on water quality tips for homeowners.
