You Can Make a Difference

Take Action for Your Water

From individuals to organizations, we all make choices that contribute to water quality problems. The good news? We can all be part of the solution. TWF works with many local, state, and national organizations to protect our lakes and streams – and you can join us in taking action! Check out the opportunities below.

  • Hoosier Riverwatch

    Become a citizen scientist! This one-day workshop will give you tools and resources to assess and report on local water quality. You’ll learn how to test the physical and chemical characteristics of a stream, how to collect and identify macroinvertebrates (critters that indicate water quality), and so much more. TWF offers this free training each summer.

  • Conservation Agriculture Projects

    Local farmers are critical partners in protecting our water from pollution! Practices like no-till planting, buffers, and cover crops lead to healthier soil, cleaner water, and increased profit and sustainability for farms. TWF offers experienced conservationists, technical assistance, and cost-sharing opportunities to support farmers who want to keep our land green and our lakes clean.

  • Healthy Shorelines Initiative

    Turn your lawn and lakeshore into a beautiful, healthy shoreline through projects like glacial stone seawalls and lake-friendly landscaping. Natural shorelines protect water quality by reducing erosion, decreasing runoff, improving habitat, and more. TWF offers technical assistance and cost-sharing opportunities to lake residents who want to create a healthy shoreline on their property.

  • Snapshot Water Monitoring Day

    Each September, volunteers come together for one day to sample 100 stream sites throughout our watershed. The data they collect provides a valuable “snapshot” of water quality in our region, which helps TWF plan future conservation projects. Plus, it’s a lot of fun!
