While watershed-wide partnerships help coordinate and catalyze conservation efforts, implementation of these efforts happens at the local level. Indeed, local government officials are key partners in our work. By engaging and empowering these officials, we will leverage more resources and ensure better outcomes in the implementation of economic and policy incentives that will support local conservation work.
