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.
WIRS serves the entire state of New Jersey, assisting both small and large nonprofits in their efforts to protect local watersheds. We consider every group we work with to be a partner organization, and we are proud to support the important and inspiring work that they do. Through our small grants program, one-on-one technical assistance, and our workshop series, we’re at work from Sussex to Cape May and everywhere in between.
For more information about the work that we do throughout the state, as well as information and resources to help strengthen your organizations, check out the pages below! For information on technical assistance and upcoming workshops, please contact the Watershed Institute Resource Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
