Together with our partners, Tinker’s Creek Watershed Partners recognizes the importance of maintaining water quality throughout Northern Ohio. We also believe in educating the public and regional leaders to support behavioral changes that positively affect our water resources. The Northern Ohio Watershed Corps (NOWCorps) works with watershed groups, soil and water conservation districts, city and county government offices, and other conservation nonprofits to facilitate outreach, education, capacity building, environmental stewardship, and stormwater management. NOWCorps members will receive programmatic training in addition to site specific training. See member descriptions below for each partner’s site specific training that will be provided.
