The Allegheny Watershed Alliance makes it easy for your watershed group to achieve its goals by providing training and materials.
We can help a watershed group from start to finish by creating a targeted map of your watershed, providing materials and training for monitoring, and storing your data. The AWA does not provide direct funding for larger projects, however, we can aid in finding grant opportunities.
Featured Watershed group SERVICES
Grant money is needed if your group would like to complete projects in the watershed. We can help your group find grants, provide guidance, and act as the applicant and 'bank' for those groups that do not have a 501 (c) (3) status.

Additional WATERSHED GROUP Services
A powerful flyer can make all the difference in getting people to show up to your watershed group meetings and events. The AWA provides promotional materials and can guide your group on social media strategies to boost group participation.
Data collection is an important part of keeping an eye on what's happening in streams in your watershed. We can help you plan what, where, and how you should monitor conditions in your watershed.
Does your group want to sample and monitor streams in your watershed, but you doesn't have the money to buy your own equipment? Lease what you need from our lending library! We have pH monitors, nets for macroinvertebrate sampling, and field kits.
Maps are a powerful tool. Paired with the knowledge the members of your group already know about your watershed, maps paint a complete picture of issues and strengths. Let us make a map for you to help your group target project areas.
Does your group want to know how to monitor a stream for chemical, physical or biological qualities? We can show your group how and what to sample in your watershed so you can feel confident and make the most of your time.
