Happy New Year! No matter what your resolutions are, rest assured that the CREW Trust will continue to safeguard the Corkscrew Regional Ecosystem Watershed so that you will have fresh water to drink, trails to explore and wildlife to view during 2016. In addition to purchasing CREW land and being watchdog over surrounding land use, educating the public is our best tool for protecting this precious watershed.
