Metro Watershed Partners

The Watershed Partners is an innovative, dynamic coalition of more than 70 public, private, and non-profit organizations in the Minneapolis/Saint Paul, Minnesota metropolitan area. Through collaborative education and outreach, we promote a public understanding that inspires people to act to protect water quality in their watershed. The two major outreach programs of the Metro Watershed Partners are Clean Water MN and Adopt-a-Drain

Monthly Meetings

The Metro Watershed Partners meet regularly - the second Wednesday of each month - to network, share information, and hear presentations on important topics related to storm water education. The meetings take place from 9:30 -11:00 am. is the Metro Watershed Partners' website where we educate and inspire Minnesotans to protect local lakes, rivers, and wetlands. The site shares stories and information to encourage metro area residents to adopt water-friendly practices in their yards, home, and neighborhoods.

The Adopt-a-Drain program invites metro area residents to commit to keeping a storm drain clear of leaves, trash, and other debris year-round. Working together, we can improve local waterways.
