We work for the watershed. It's our nature.
Our work is multifaceted. Part science: assessing and monitoring the biology, geology, and hydrology of each project. Part management: pulling together agencies, consultants and contractors needed to get the job done. And part funding: finding the grants, foundations and donors needed to finance these ambitious multi-year efforts. Finally, it's getting the word out: educating locals, visitors and downstream water-users about our stressed and endangered eco-system. By managing large-scale restoration projects, influencing emerging policies to mitigate risk, and engaging people from all age, interest and economic backgrounds, we work to make the watershed more resilient, sustainable and alive.
