Our Mission


Rockaway Beach Citizens for Watershed Protection (RBCWP) is a grass-roots association of citizens from Rockaway Beach and surrounding communities. The group began in 2012 with the actions of one Rockaway citizen concerned about clear cutting for forestland and aerial spraying in the Jetty Creek Watershed - the sole source of her community's drinking water.

The group now partners with neighboring communities facing air- and water-quality issues and with statewide organizations advocating for forest practices that will ensure clean air and water for all living beings.

Our Goals

  • To educate citizens about the connection between forest practices and the quality of their air and water.
  • To advocate for forest practices that will ensure clean air and water.
  • To support communities working to protect their watershed.
