Monitoring

Watershed monitoring enables us to check the pulse of our local rivers. Through water quality and habitat monitoring, we can track the results of restoration efforts and adapt our projects to meet the needs of the watershed.

We can offer support to landowners who want to implement restoration and conservation projects on their properties. Our support exists in the form of funding, expertise, or both.
