Welcome to the Willcox Watershed Conservancy. The WWC is dedicated to restoring and preserving the over three hundred acres of woods, water, parklands , and fields in Petersburg’s Lee Memorial Park.

Nowhere else can you find tennis courts and baseball fields surrounded by a 330 million year old granite formation, a 4.5 million year old marine deposit filled with fossils, a series of Confederate Civil War earthworks, a bird and wildflower sanctuary, a landscape created by women carrying out a Depression Era WPA project, and a man-made lake, Willcox Lake, that prompted one of the country’s early Civil Rights cases.
