Debbie Porter: Help buy water for Wolf Creek

It takes a village. We need the community’s help. There is a lovely creek in South County called South Wolf Creek. It is a major tributary for Wolf Creek and it went dry for over two months this year due to the drought.

With state mandates to water companies to cut back on water, an unintended outcome has been the drying up of the creek. This waterway is home to native fish, turtles, crawdads, fresh water clams, dragonflies, ducks and birds (including wood ducks, mallards and kingfishers, and all types of animals using it as their water source.

Concerned people have started a fund to purchase water until the rains. Enough has been raised to get the water flowing again but our limited funding is about to run out. So, I have started a GoFundMe account to raise money to keep the water going. Please check out the site (link available at and share it with others.

Any amount donation will be welcome. Nature will be forever grateful!
