The Conservation Foundation is directly involved with several watershed groups within our service area and we provide varying levels of service to others. Learn more about the watershed you live in and how you might be able to get involved.
What is worse than a planning document sitting on a shelf in someone’s office collecting dust? Watershed plans are only as good as their implementation, and that implementation can’t be done by one organization alone. As an individual there are many things that you can do to help implement a watershed plan, like participating in Conservation@Home, a local river or park clean-up, or exploring your favorite natural area with your children to they too learn to appreciate our natural resources.
The Conservation Foundation has had a long history with the DuPage River Watershed and is directly involved, in multiple ways, with the DuPage River Salt Creek Workgroup and the Lower DuPage River Watershed Coalition. In addition to providing professional staff to both organizations through a fee for service contract, we also work as a partner to implement education and outreach activities, promote strong partnerships and acknowledge/award good practices.
We have also provided coordination for watershed planning efforts for:
- Blackberry Creek Watershed
- Ferson-Otter Creek Watershed
- AuxSable Creek Watershed
- Tyler Creek Watershed
Please contact us if you are interested in learning more about how you can be involved in these watershed groups.
