It’s a group of “problem solvers designing and implementing data-driven solutions that protect and restore America’s freshwater.” They use ” science, technology, policy and finance to build and manage solutions that improve water quality and quantity.” The trust also works to “enable smarter watershed management to happen faster and at a greater scale” and to employ their “solutions on the ground, such as riparian restoration, for the benefit of both watersheds and the plants, animals and people that rely on them.”
