Get Involved

Local watershed councils are a community’s liaison to restoration dollars and technical assistance; creating partnerships, providing informational workshops and environmental education, hosting volunteer events like tree plantings and invasive weed removals and sharing important legislative news. We might be partial, but we think that taking part in watershed council activities and decision making is one of the coolest and most important things one can do for their neighborhood and greater community. Just come to one of our four councils’ meetings.

Councils meet every other month and meetings are usually two hours or less. See our full schedule of NCWA meetings and events here or contact NCWA with any questions:
