• We bring the people to the water.

    For over fifteen years, WaterWays has empowered its international community to protect and restore their watersheds.

Watershed health matters. 

Our work is brought about by a passion for people, and for the environment we share. We believe that clean water fosters healthy communities, and vice versa. Join us in our mission of empowering community members to make positive actions in their watersheds.

Through thoughtful collaborations with engineers, landscape architects, and local stakeholders, WaterWays coordinates and implements restoration projects in the areas where they’re most needed. 

Inspired by the lessons of nature, WaterWays equips both students and teachers with the necessary tools and vocabulary to dip their toes into the world around them.

Watershed health is critical to every member of the community. We offer inclusive education and solutions to empower every citizen to be a steward of their environment, starting with their own backyards. 

What is a watershed? 

A watershed is the area of land that channels rainfall and snowmelt to creeks, streams, and rivers, and eventually to outflow points such as reservoirs, bays, and the ocean. This area can be as small as your backyard or large enough to cover half of the United States, since small watersheds combine with one another to create large drainage basins. The health of a watershed is vitally important for the health of its inhabitants, from plants to birds to trees to people. Individuals, families, and businesses can contribute toward overall watershed health by making their lawns and gardens creek-friendly.
