Who We Are

About The Partnership

Broad range of expertise, experience and responsibilities: Smith Creek Watershed Partnership (SCWP) capitalizes on the expertise of agronomists, biologists, hydro-geologists, water quality specialists, stream restoration practitioners, education and outreach professionals.

Members of the SCWP include representatives from federal, state and local agencies, private business interests, academia, and non-profit conservation organizations. The SCWP openly invites any organization – including local governments, additional private industries and political representatives – that wants to contribute to Smith Creek Watershed conservation to join and play an active role in the group’s activities.
