Our mission is to sustain and improve the water resources of Springfield and Greene County through education and effective management of the region’s watersheds

Education at WC

At the Watershed Center, we strive to provide age appropriate, place-based, education about our water resources. Some groups come simply to enjoy the Park–The Watershed Center is located at Valley Water Mill Park, which is open from sunrise to sunset every day (except Christmas…). Casual visitors can learn about the site through interpretive signage and kiosks located around the park.

Watershed Natives

The Watershed Natives Program cultivates, grows and sells native plants. Native plants are integral to soil health, pollinator and wildlife habitat, erosion prevention, biodiversity, and nutrient runoff reduction. Choosing to purchase Watershed Natives supports watershed health and the students at Hillcrest High School.
