Building Partnerships

The Watershed was created through collaboration and we accomplish much of our work through partnerships. We’ve helped form several other non-profits and coalitions of like-minded groups, and we work collaboratively with municipal governments, businesses, schools, clubs, and other organizations to achieve our mission.
