The Watershed Improvement Network (WIN) is a coalition of Howard County watershed group leaders and individuals who share an interest in improving the health and resilience of Howard County watersheds. WIN identifies and empowers leaders to engage the community in the protection, improvement and promotion of each of the watersheds in Howard County. WIN fosters collaborative efforts of the business, agricultural, environmental, social, cultural, educational and political stakeholders in the community by providing networking opportunities and encouraging the creation of partnerships.
Watershed Improvement Network holds two networking meetings per year so that representatives from local watershed groups can share information and learn from each other. These meetings usually include one or two short presentations followed by updates from the attendees about recent projects. The meetings conclude with time set aside for networking. WIN also provides an on-line message board where members can exchange messages, share documents, and collaborate on-line. Members also receive periodic email updates with information such as grant opportunities.
WIN has a steering committee that plans the meetings and assists communication among the group. The best way to get involved is to attend a WIN networking meetings to find out what’s happening in Howard County watersheds. To find out when the meetings are, send an email to Rachel Beebe including your name and a message that you would like to be added to the WIN email list.
