The Robin L. Vannote Watershed Restoration Program

Watershed Restoration: A Shared Public and Private Investment

Stroud Water Research Center works hand in hand with landowners, helping them use their land more effectively through whole-farm planning and watershed stewardship. In return for our program services, landowners are asked to install forested buffers on streams on their properties and to allow us ongoing access to their sites to gather the scientific data from these efforts. The Watershed Restoration Program enables our expert team to set up the collaborations and partnerships necessary to achieve the highest level of freshwater conservation.
