Sustainably Funding Your Watershed Efforts

A NC Watershed Stewardship Network Workshop

Money- it can’t buy you love, but it can help buy a conservation easement or build a rain garden to show your local waterways that you care!

Join the NC Watershed Stewardship Network at a new daylong workshop this fall, “Sustainably Funding your Watershed Efforts” to learn about and discuss strategies for obtaining funds and leveraging resources to support watershed protection and restoration efforts. Participants from non-profits and informal watershed groups, municipalities, and conservation agencies are encouraged to attend along with others from their watersheds.

Participants will learn about public and private sources of funding through “lightning round” presentations by funding organizations, hear local watershed groups’ successful strategies, learn grant-writing tips, and consider how to apply strategies in their own watershed efforts.

The workshop fee is $20, and includes lunch and snacks.

The workshop is offered in three locations:

Sept. 27, 9:00 am -3:30 pm; Catawba County Agricultural Resources Center, Newton, NC – Agenda

Oct. 23, 9:30 am-4:00 pm; Mount Olive University, New Bern, NC – Agenda

Nov. 9, 9:00 am – 3:30 pm; City of Fayetteville Public Works Commission, Fayetteville, NC – Agenda
