What is Tinker’s Creek Watershed Partners NOWCorps program?

Together with our partners, Tinker’s Creek Watershed Partners recognizes the importance of maintaining water quality throughout Northern Ohio. We also believe in educating the public and regional leaders to support behavioral changes that positively affect our water resources. The Northern Ohio Watershed Corps (NOWCorps) works with watershed groups, soil and water conservation districts, city and county government offices, and other conservation nonprofits to facilitate outreach, education, capacity building, environmental stewardship, and stormwater management. NOWCorps members will receive programmatic training in addition to site specific training. See member descriptions below for each partner’s site specific training that will be provided.

While environmental stewardship is the major focus, the Northern Ohio Watershed Corps Program will focus on four major activities.

Stewardship: Improving water quality is the heart of the collective mission and being an environmental steward will help collect and gather the necessary data to do so.

Conservation: As a member you can engage in water quality testing and data collection, tree plantings, native plant installations, invasive vegetation removal, and more.

Education: Help assist our partners with program design, implementation and follow up. Certain programs will facilitate new relationships with schools, youth groups, public engagement groups, and volunteers.

Capacity Building: As a member you can assist our partners in concrete strategies for volunteer recruitment, program expansion and consistency among outreach. As a member you will obtain, improve, and retain the skills, knowledge, tools, equipment and other resources to be a true environmental steward!
