Reviews for Watershed Management Group Inc

Rating: 5 stars  

Through this amazing organization, I have discovered my life's passion for watershed stewardship. It's focus on community appealed to my desire to connect with others through hands-on projects, while the high quality training offered met my expectations to learn practical, best practices for HOW to care for our land and water. I started as a volunteer, then became a co-op member, and now am a monthly donor. The more I engage with the organization, the more impressed I am at its focus, excellent use of funds, and impacts.

I knew Lisa and Catlow Shipek, as athletes(!), when WMG was still in its infancy, and found them to be two of the most dedicated, down-to-earth, hard working, and open individuals I ever knew. Lisa certainly has great long-view/big picture planning capabilities, yet WMG's work and M.O. are firmly hands on, community based, and local solutions oriented. All of their work regarding watershed management, from cistern installation, landscape projects, to educating the public and training individuals are top notch, level-headed, and laced with good humor. I am a catering chef who has donated time, foods, and discounted services for different WMG events. I feel great about doing do, and simply love the work they are doing in this and other communities.

I have been so impressed by WMG over the years as I have watched them grow (from afar). I am a donor and Facebook follower. Much of what they do helps to educate the community, who can then teach each other better water management practices and help each other with installations and ideas. Through education, consultations, and demonstrations, WMG helps to build a sense of community in the greater Tucson area and in the world!

This a great non-profit that teaches sustainability practices through hands on experience, while making an on-the-ground difference. This is a no-frills organization with a great reputation with a large group of volunteers and supporters.

If you want to take your sustainability to the next level or help others to do the same, you should donate or volunteer with Watershed Management Group!
