"I am grateful for the efforts of the many hard working volunteers of The Blue Mountain Watershed Trust who make local watershed monitoring and protection possible. This is such a great charitable organization – its local, full of dedicated, highly committed people, who are making a difference about something so deeply important and fundamental to our environment. Thank you!"

-- Betty Muise, Adult Education and Facilitation Specialist, Local Resident.

A friend once said, “If we could tap into the knowledge and experience of all of the people now living in our watershed, as a group, we could do anything!” You may be one of those people and we need your help. As a group of environmentally conscious individuals we attempt to bring focus and activities that educate and inform, and, protect and preserve important natural features vital to our health and enjoyment and for our grandchildren’s grandchildren to enjoy.

Do you have a special talent that you would like to share with us on a project basis or in an advisory capacity? Maybe you have a background in legal affairs, environmental expertise, fund raising, media, not for profit organizations, natural resources, political affairs, education, websites, etc. or you have a friend that does.

1) Governance – ensure there is adequate and responsible governance of the Watershed Trust and that the Board of Directors fulfills its legal, ethical and functional responsibilities.

2) Finance – to inform, guide and make recommendations in all financial matters including budgets, expenditures, grant applications and annual financial statements.

3) Watershed Action Group (WAG) – to ensure the wetlands and other natural heritage features of the Watershed Trust area of interest are protected from inappropriate development and to recommend actions that achieve this purpose.

4) Membership / Communications / Publication – to ensure that we are effectively communicating with our key stakeholders (members, community, government, etc.) to provide them with current, relevant information that encourages their support, membership and/or donations. This includes all letters, newsletters, website and membership database.
