Welcome to the Watershed Institute Resource Service, formerly known as the Watershed Institute. Our program name may be different, but our mission remains unchanged: promoting the health and resiliency of New Jersey’s watersheds by strengthening, connecting, and mobilizing watershed organizations.


The Watershed Institute provides one-on-one assistance to watershed organizations to help them operate at their full potential, regardless of whether the organization is just in the planning phases or is already well established.



The Watershed Institute sponsors a variety of training sessions, workshops, and roundtables throughout the year to bring people from various groups across New Jersey together to meet, collaborate, and learn from one another.



Through generous contributions from the Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation, the Watershed Institute runs a small grants program to help organizations with the work that they do in their home watersheds and across New Jersey.

The Watershed Institute is here to be a resource for you! Connect with other NJ watershed professionals and stay up-to-date on all of the latest workshop events and grant opportunities.

Thank you to the Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation for making this program possible!



The water we drink in our homes and workplaces comes from a variety of sources depending on where you live.


The Watershed applauds this decision by NJDEP to reject PennEast’s fatally flawed permit application.
