Program Mission:

Strengthening local capacity for successful watershed management.

Through collaborative efforts, we work to improve watershed management skills, provide forums for exchange of problems and solutions, and build an effective watershed support network in Indiana.


Invest in Your Watersheds

Indiana Watershed Leadership is a program of Purdue University and partners. We have been very fortunate to have been supported through 319 Clean Water Act grants from the Indiana Department of Environmental Management for many years, but now our funding is coming to an end.

Every donation, no matter the size, will help us continue our educational programming for successful watershed management.

We thank you for your generous support!
