Project Watershed’s real work is

to bring about a change of attitude

Stewardship has different meanings for different people. For our purposes, community stewardship means taking personal and collective responsibility for the protection and restoration of our home watersheds and sensitive habitats. It requires a long-term commitment from the entire community: its organizations, its businesses, its government agencies and, especially, its citizens. Each person lives in a watershed, each person must take some responsibility to ensure that our watershed heritage is passed on to succeeding generations in good health.

A watershed is inclusive, incorporating not only air, water and the natural resources, but also the human community that lives, breathes, works and drinks within its rain defined boundaries. During our history, we have learned that, in order for the community to take responsibility for clean air, land and water, people of all backgrounds must be encouraged to become involved in local stewardship activities and must be given the support required to make their efforts satisfying and effective.

While the output of Project Watershed’s work will hopefully be the protection and restoration of our local watersheds and associated sensitive habitats, the “process” by which we carry out our objective is also of prime importance. Through involving our fellow citizens in useful work, we hope to foster an enduring relationship between citizens and their watersheds.
