About the Center for Watershed Protection
The Center for Watershed Protection’s mission is to protect and restore our streams, rivers, lakes, wetlands, and bays. Their experienced staff of scientists, planners, and environmental professionals are the technical experts who help municipalities, advocates, policymakers, and citizens get clean water projects in the ground. Founded in 1992, the center began as a nonprofit organization dedicated to research and education on watersheds. With an initial focus on protecting urban streams from the impacts of land development, the organization has grown over the years to become a national leader on stormwater management and watershed planning.
