Your water. Your environment. Your voice.


The Watershed Association’s River-Friendly Certification Programs promote clean water and a healthy environment through voluntary action by individuals and institutions. To achieve these goals we work one-on-one with residents, businesses, golf courses and schools to improve land stewardship practices. The program works to reduce pollution, conserve water, restore habitat for wildlife and educate the public about becoming better environmental stewards.

What does “River-Friendly” mean to us?

Our River-Friendly Programs revolve around four main components:

Water Quality Management
Water Conservation
Wildlife Habitat Enhancement
Education & Outreach

River-Friendly at the Reserve

The Watershed Association leads by example and embraces good land stewardship practices on our 930-acre Watershed Reserve. We completed the River-Friendly Business Certification Program and received certification back in 2005 and are currently working toward recertification with the updated program standards. After rigorous review by an independent Technical Advisory Committee (TAC), the Watershed Association will boast River-Friendly Certification once again.
