Ensuring healthy watersheds for the wellbeing of people and nature.
Water is the great connective element in all of our work at Ecotrust, from salmon habitat to forests, farms, and fisheries. Our goal is to protect and restore watersheds and the economic and public health of the communities that depend upon them. We believe that water managed for the long-term wellbeing of people and nature is an essential building block for regional resilience. We develop and apply strategic approaches that improve habitat for native fish and wildlife, create local jobs and recreational opportunities, increase public awareness of the value of nature’s services like water, and ensure a more reliable access to clean water for all members of our communities.
