The Mud Run Conservancy is dedicated to preserving, conserving, protecting and restoring the land and water resources in the upper watershed of Mud Run. The Mud Run is a spring fed creek in Mad River Township, Clark County, Ohio.
Take care of the water that gave us life, Got to be willing to sacrifice! Keep it in rhythm and let it flow.
(Take a listen to this song knowing that Coyote Run and Pup Creek are tributaries of the Mud Run which is a tributary of the Mad River. Ohio’s streams need our protection.)

Mud Run survey… looking for fish with the monster.
The headwaters of the Mad River begin just north west of West Liberty in Champaign County near Piatt Castles. The spring fed river is one of Ohio’s few trout streams and offers year round paddling free of ice. The Mad River conflues with the Miami River in downtown Dayton and continues on as the Miami all the way to Cincinnati and the beautiful Ohio River.
“What’s important is protecting the quality of this stream and the watershed. That is first and foremost.” Tom Allen
