TWP provides assistance to watershed groups and their leaders. We help build the capacity of these groups so they can be more effective in protecting their local watershed. Why are we working to build grassroots organizational capacity? Hundreds of watershed groups have formed in recent years. In order to be successful, they need to have strengths in a wide array of areas–fundraising, public outreach, planning, project implementation, board development and volunteer managment just to name a few. TWP helps groups in those areas where they identify a need. We help groups become more effective and efficient so water resources receive the best possible protection.
