Contact our AmeriCorps Watershed Ambassador if you would like to learn how to assess the health of the rivers and streams in your community.

4.      Plan a Watershed Clean-up

The WRWMG is always interested in helping to coordinate watershed clean-up events, including pulling together volunteers, organizing necessary materials, and coordinating efforts to dispose of the trash.

5.      Read a Watershed Restoration Plan Prepared by the WRWMG

A watershed restoration plan is the “story of the watershed.” In addition to providing a comprehensive characterization and assessment of a specific watershed area, a watershed restoration plan identifies, prioritizes, and recommends the actions that should be taken to restore, enhance, and protect it.
