About Us

Watershed Committee of the Ozarks is a 501c(3) not-for-profit whose mission is to sustain and improve the water resources of Springfield and Greene County through education and effective management of the region’s watersheds. The work of our mission falls primarily into two categories: projects and education. Our current projects involve a variety of public and private partners, and urban and rural citizens to improve water quality. Many of our current and completed projects include demonstrations of low-impact development techniques to reduce pollution in stormwater and gather information on the effectiveness of pollution reducing practices to continue to improve their effectiveness. Our educational efforts strive to give all citizens information and experiences which improve their understanding of local water resources and encourage the stewardship of those resources. Participants range of audiences from children to professionals. There are a variety of volunteer opportunities, and all of them focus on protecting our local water resources! This is your chance to get involved in the outdoors, grow and take care of native plant species, keep our local waterways clean, and even help teach our community’s youth about nature, science, and conservation!
