Yellow Creek and its North Fork are about 17 miles long. The watershed covers 31 square miles. Yellow Creek drains east into the Cuyahoga River.
The Friends of Yellow Creek began as the Yellow Creek Watershed Committee. It was created in January, 2006, by a Resolution of Bath Township as a citizen group to ensure the preservation and protection of the Yellow Creek and its tributaries. It is guided by the strategies in The Yellow Creek Watershed Action Plan created by the Northeast Ohio Four County Regional Planning and Development Organization (“NEFCO”).

To preserve, protect and enhance the aesthetic, physical, and biological integrity of the Yellow Creek Watershed.
This mission shall be accomplished through actions such as monitoring, education, conservation and restoration.
Yellow Creek is a tributary of the Cuyahoga River in Northeast Ohio. It has been rated as one of only two high water-quality tributaries of the Cuyahoga River, but it is also threatened by effects of development. Recent data indicate that water quality may be declining.
As described in the Mission statement, the Friends of Yellow Creek aim to help in the effort to preserve the good, remediate the bad, and educate.
