This on-demand webinar is comprised of three separate videos, each focused on a different region within the U.S. – the East Coast, Midwest and Southwest. Please find links below for each regional video.
Clean water is a necessity for life and the foundation of healthy ecosystems, successful agriculture and strong communities. Since every industry has water as part of their process, private landowners can play a key role in largescale watershed conservation. But it is not up to corporations alone to have a positive effect on water quality. By building partnerships within and beyond the private sector, companies can expand their impact and engage stakeholders who may not have otherwise been involved in water conservation.
In this webinar, you’ll hear from three organizations — a corporation, a state agency, and a collaborative initiative — about their watershed enhancement work. From connecting with farmers to removing invasive plants, these entities are working across sectors and establishing strong relationships for water stewardship.
What you’ll learn:
- How corporations can collaborate with other companies, NGOs and agencies to enhance water quality
- How watershed conservation projects vary in urban and rural settings
- Ways to measure success in water stewardship projects
Who should take this webinar:
- Corporations looking to make connections around water quality projects
- Non-profit organizations, agencies or grassroots groups that want to expand the scope of their existing watershed conservation work
- Anyone interested in learning more about the role of the private sector in water conservation
