The South Fayette Conservation Group (SFCG) is an award winning non-profit conservation and watershed group located in southern Allegheny County about 12 miles southwest of Pittsburgh. Our mission is to conserve, protect and enhance our natural and recreational resources for the benefit of our families and neighbors.
We address conservation issues associated with urban growth and also address the issue of abandoned mine drainage (AMD), which impacts major tributaries in the region including Millers Run, Coal Run, Fishing Run and Robinson Run. In addition, the group seeks to increase public awareness of these issues and to increase the involvement among different sectors of our community.
We are an all volunteer organization with an enviable list of accomplishments, many of which involve the coordinated efforts of private, public, and commercial entities. Our projects have included major stream remediation, riparian land restorations and several community and education outreach initiatives among many other achievements.
