Ash Creek Conservation Association

Dedicated to the preservation and restoration of Bridgeport's last surviving Salt Marsh Estuary

Our Purpose

The Ash Creek Conservation Association, Inc. (ACCA) is a non-profit citizen- based group dedicated to the preservation and restoration of Ash Creek, a salt marsh estuary located at the mouth of the Rooster River between the towns of Bridgeport and Fairfield in Connecticut. Our group strives to educate local Bridgeport and Fairfield residents, political leaders, environmental groups, and other concerned citizens about the value and fragility of the Ash Creek tidal estuary.

Association Goals

Who we are

The ACCA is composed mostly of volunteers from the communities of Bridgeport and Fairfield. We are a 501 (c ) 3 non-profit organization with a Board of Directors and approximately 200 members.  We also have enlisted the help of a number of local environmental and wildlife experts including Milan Bull of the Connecticut Audubon Society, Michael Aurelia of the Connecticut Conservation Association, and ecological consultants. For a great overview of Ash Creek Conservation efforts and our current projects, you can download the presentation given by Gail Robinson, ACCA president, as a PDF file.

This is a very important and worthwhile group. It is so important to make sure that pollution stays out of these salt water marsh estuaries that are at the mouths of rivers. It really is not fair when mankind pollutes or destroys these areas and eco-systems. Lance

Gail:  You absolutely, without a doubt, continue to amaze me.  Are you by chance... triplets ?  Just reading about all you do, and what you have accomplished... wears me out.  Whew !  And just think... you're probably going to be around until at least your mid-nineties.  Look out world !

By the way... great post, great presentation, and great picture.  Thanks for sharing.

Gail:  One of the many reasons that I think you're great--you give back to the community and what a fabulous way to do so!  Great article for localism.

Lance - Luckily, there was another environmental group protecting the tidal estuary from the 60's through the 80's which is why it's so well preserved.  We are simply building on the efforts of others before us.

Karen Anne - I definitely take on too much!  Yeah, with those genes, I'll be around a while, unless I get hit by a bus.

Debe - Thank you for the kind words.
