final logoWho we are?

Swift Creek Nature Club was started in 2015 by a group of local nature enthusiasts in the vicinity of Swift Creek Reservoir in Chesterfield County, Virginia. Our group is open to anyone who appreciates nature and wants to learn more about wildlife and nature conservation.  Swift Creek Reservoir and surrounding neighborhoods provide unique habitats for many native plants and wildlife, making it a living laboratory for us and our families to explore and appreciate.

“In the end we will conserve only what we love, we will love only what we understand, and we will understand only what we are taught.”                                                                                                                                                       -Baba Dioum
