All that Headwaters has the privilege of participating in is because of the outstanding work that conservation partners across the landscape have underway. Here are a few links to partners that are doing exciting work, outreach, training, and with exceptional outcomes worth checking out.
With a focus on innovations that will turn the tide on water quality improvements in the Chesapeake Bay, Kristen Hughes Evans and her team are making huge strides towards collaborative conservation that works.
Dave Hirschman, Stormwater Engineer, writes an exceptional blog that I've enjoyed subscribing to since meeting Dave on all things water and the environment plus some intelligent social commentary. A recent favorite: THE BEST LECTURE I HEARD IN COLLEGE: HOW TO TIE A CANOE ONTO A CAR.
Looking for the science and outreach needed to get buffers delivered? This team has excelled over the years in both the communication and delivery of forested riparian buffers.
An outstanding and enjoyable resource for why conservation matters. Bobby Whitescarver's blog and writing provide provocative guidance and encouragement for those of us who want to stay rooted in why we do this work.
Funded by NFWF and VEE beginning in 2017, this regional collaborative is producing results, amping up the quality of riparian buffers across the Middle and Upper James River, and pulling in new partners - landowners and TA providers alike - to enhance protection of the James. Kudos to Amber Ellis and her team. Check out: https://jamesriverconsortium.org/
Recently, Calvan Environmental's Liz Feinberg facilitated a "Building Better Projects & Proposals" session for the Chesapeake Bay Watershed Forum (2021), a 75 min coaching on how partners can improve proposals to NFWF, especially for its Small Watershed Grants Program. It's worth a watch if you're in the proposal development business.
Partners who are making huge change in the local and collective environmental quality.
