About Us at the Watershed Institute
A multi-disciplined team approach
The Watershed Institute concept was originated in
1996 by a group of state and federal government
employees as an unofficial method to address many
natural resource issues.  In 2004 the group formed a
non-profit corporation and hired a seasoned
environmental attorney as the Executive Director and
have not looked back since.
