Since water is the lifeblood of our earth, our mission would be impossible if they were unsuccessful in theirs.
Just as we see much cross pollination in nature, so it goes for environmental non-profits. Recognizing the importance of a healthy ecosystem, supporters generously advocate for both land and water and we all thrive together.
For example, FoHVOS Trustee and Board Secretary, Chris Berry, serves as volunteer teacher-naturalist and provides support for The Watershed stewardship efforts.
Additionally, we were thrilled when The Watershed recognized The Bean Family as their "Resident of the Year" for their work initiated under our FoHVOS Private Land Stewardship Program. The Beans further their efforts by attending The Watershed Institute's environmental education.
The Watershed Executive Director Jim Waltman attended our Meet the Executive Director Open House and has graciously welcomed me into the fold.
We have also done several joint programs and they have engaged our stewardship director on their own stewardship plan. We are currently planning additional events to appeal to Hopewell Valley residents.
Finally, the Watershed hosts the FoHVOS monthly board meeting.

Speaking of Friends, I've included an old photo of Jim Waltman's son and mine. (They are in high school now.)
Just to complete the loop, Jim and I may need to don silly hats... or not...
Hats off to our featured partner -- The Stony Brook-Millstone Watershed Association.
