|About us||There is nowhere in the world quite like the Grand Traverse region, where water flows all around us before finding its way into the Grand Traverse Bay. The Watershed Center has a 20 year history of protecting and preserving Grand Traverse Bay and its 1,000-square mile watershed through on-the-ground projects and advocacy. Our water quality and quality of life are worth protecting. We accomplish this mission through advocacy and on-the-ground restoration projects.|
