Education and Outreach

The Nine Mile Creek Watershed District is committed to protecting and preserving the water resources of the Nine Mile Creek Watershed. One way it is able to do so is through education and outreach. Every year, staff, volunteers, and members from the CAC take part in activities reaching out to members of the community.

In addition, the District provides training opportunities for educators, city professionals and eager learners. The district also has volunteer opportunities. Please see below for further details on each of these programs.
