Bad River Watershed Association
The Bad River Watershed Association is a nonprofit organization that works to involve all citizens in taking care of and enjoying their home watershed. (The BadRiver watershed is a large, sparsely populated, heavily forested watershed in the Wisconsin portion of the Lake Superior basin.) We accomplish this by conducting educational programs and forums about how the decisions we make, individually and communally, affect our watershed. In addition, we assist citizens to gather information, identify problems and implement solutions to maintain the integrity of our watershed for future generations. Since our founding in 2002, we have grown from an entirely volunteer organization, to a staff of 4 with an annual budget of $225,000.
