Clear Creek Conservation Trust
The beginning of the Clear Creek Conservation Trust was established as part of the Shelbyville 2000 plan, a comprehensive plan for the area that would bring it into the 21st Century. The mission of Clear Creek Conservation Trust is to preserve and enhance the scenic, environmental, historical, agricultural and recreational qualities of the Clear Creek Basin and the land associate with it.
The Greenway Action Plan is one of the projects that will benefit the entire community. It requires participation of both Shelby County and Shelbyville Citizens. This plan will stretch from Hwy 55 to Zaring Mill Road. It will create a clean and ample water resource, develop a serene, quiet and private place for individual enjoyment, create a rich, natural environment with lush woodlands and wildflowers, abundant fish, wildlife and unique native habitats, protect historic tradition and beautiful scenery, and encourage the exploration of the creek habitat by canoe and trail.
