Keeping water clean, safe and healthy are at the heart of the Watershed’s mission. Since 1949, we have worked to protect and restore our water and natural environment through conservation, advocacy, science and education. Our staff includes policy analysts and advocates, scientists, land and water stewards, naturalists and educators. We advocate for more effective environmental laws and regulations, protect and restore sensitive habitats, test our waterways for pollution, and inspire others to care for and protect the natural world.

Education

We have developed new educational programs for schools to build knowledge about water. In 2018, we partnered with 26 schools to teach the Next Generation Science Standards. Many of the lessons involve finding solutions to real-world problems and examining the impact of human activities on water and the environment. Students work on engineering and science projects using critical thinking skills and collaboration.
