What We Provide for Our Member Communities

We are working to achieve our goals by continually strengthening our relationships with the watershed communities. We are doing this by creating educational opportunities for residents, children, and elected officials.  We are also committed to creating model resource management examples through grant writing and community collaboration.

Providing services to our Community Members is extremely important.  Community Memberships are available for communities within the Tinker’s Creek watershed which allow us to continue to provide them with watershed protection and planning services. The group assists communities with NPDES compliance and we provide education and resources to elected officials about smart growth initiatives, best management practices, and policies and ordinances that help protect our water resources.
