Land conservation and environmental restoration are key tools to protect clean water. The Watershed Institute has preserved nearly 1,000 acres of land at the Watershed Reserve and has partnered with local land trusts to preserve hundreds of additional acres in the region. We also engage in environmental restoration actions like planting trees, restoring meadows, installing “green infrastructure” and removing old dams.
