Our Origins

In 2017 efforts began to coordinate the West Hickman Watershed. LFUCG supported those efforts with the West Hickman Watershed Council. Through the meetings held by the council, leadership emerged, including enough interested individuals to incorporate a non-profit focused on the watershed.

What’s In a Name?

Fayette County boasts both East and West Hickman Creeks. They join in Jessamine County before entering the Kentucky River as Hickman Creek   Our primary focus right now is the West Hickman Creek watershed within Fayette County. But we are not limiting ourselves forever! Hickman Creek Conservancy was incorporated on Jan 1, 2019, and is a 501c3 nonprofit organization.

Our Current Work

Currently we are funded by a Kentucky River Authority grant to do organizational work and outreach.  We have also partnered with the City of Lexington Division of Water Quality and Kentucky River Watershed Watch to help promote Lexington’s Volunteer Focused Watershed Monitoring Program developed by Lexington, KRWW and Bluegrass Community and Technical College.  We are also partnered with the City of Lexington Division of Environmental Services to assist with the outreach involved with the watershed planning process underway in the West Hickman Watershed.

Hickman Creek Conservancy’s status as a 501c3 non-profit enables us to partner with local residents in order to fund projects using the City of Lexington’s Stormwater Quality Projects Incentive Grant Program.  We will be working to build relationships and identify opportunities for making progress toward keeping our waterways clean and green using this and other sources of funding.
