The Watershed Foundation is an environmental nonprofit dedicated to protecting and improving water quality in the lakes and streams of the Upper Tippecanoe River Watershed.
Founded in 1997, our organization began as the Tippecanoe Environmental Lake and Watershed Foundation (TELWF). TELWF’s first volunteers were residents of Lake Tippecanoe who recognized that a larger vision of focusing on the entire watershed was necessary to protect all of our lakes. Soon after, TELWF became TWF: The Watershed Foundation.
Today, TWF works to protect water resources throughout the Upper Tippecanoe River Watershed, a land area that covers 236 square miles and contains over 60 lakes, numerous creeks and streams, and the Tippecanoe River.
