A guided approach to more effective watershed programs



ALL OF US, whether we are citizens or scientists, care about our ecosystems and want to protect them. But so often the task feels so large, so complicated, and so intimidating that the “passion to protect” gets lost in the challenge of finding funds, collecting data and setting up procedures. By helping those who have chosen to care for watersheds focus their efforts where they really count, we hope this guide will keep that passion alive, focused, and contagious.
