|Mission of the Brush Valley Preservation Association (BVPA) has been established to preserve Trout Run a 2,000 acre portion of Brush Valley. This precious land harbors mountainsides, a valley floor, a 35 million gallon lake, continual bubbling sand spring and an incredible collection of wildlife.|
In 2004, the upper valley or Roaring Creek Watershed, was acquired by the Department of Conservation & Natural Resources, as a part of the Weiser State Forest. BVPA promotes the DCNR acquisition of Trout Run as a State Park for public recreation. BVPA believes in the importance to promote our community’s natural resources and oppose reckless and irresponsible development.
BVPA is actively working to educate local leaders and gain local support for the protection of Brush Valley. A recent poll in The News-Item indicated tremendous support for DCNR's acquisition of Trout Run for a public park. Learn more about BVPA.
Visionof the BVPA is to develop an effective and strategic plan to promote economic development and improve and utilize our resources and heritage. We realize that if our community is to grow a stronger economic backbone, it must first offer a higher standard of living to its residents. Open space and recreational facilities are a major contributor to the quality of life in a community.
