Octoraro Watershed Association -   http://www.theowa.org/home/about_us

"The Octoraro Watershed Association is dedicated to protecting and conserving the natural and historical resources of the Octoraro Watershed.  The watershed covers 208 square miles and includes fourteen townships and four boroughs in Southern Chester and Lancaster Counties, Pennsylvania and Cecil County Maryland.  The Octoraro Creek flows into the Susquehanna River downstream from the Conowingo Dam, which in turn empties into the Chesapeake Bay.The Watershed Association was founded in 1967 by a group of Chester and Lancaster County residents dedicated to protecting water quality, promoting sound land use practices and raising environmental awareness."

Andrews Bridge Foxhounds has been actively working in conjunction with conservancies and environmental organizations that directly effect our community. Our hunt country is intensely agricultural farmed for generations by both the 'English' and the Amish. Old farming practices have caused numerous environmental stresses which have directly affected us as well as the Chesapeake Bay. In addition to keeping lands open and properties preserved, we have the added issues of cleaning up the Bells Run, the Ball Run, and the East Branch of the Octoraro. We have been teaming up with these well know conservancies and acting as a liaison with many of our friends in the Amish community to do this.  


Below are some of the local groups Andrews Bridge Foxhounds is working with in our area.
