We are optimistic about the future and about people’s ability to make positive change. We believe that collective everyday actions can change the

We recognize our reliance on and relationship with each other and our environment as inextricably and necessarily collaborative. All our human and
non-human relationships must be healthy and mutually beneficial to thrive.

We believe every challenge has a solution, and we focus our energies on identifying, implementing, and adapting those solutions.

Responsive (We Are One Watershed)
We strive to be responsive to the different needs of our communities and ecosystems and recognize that – to restore the watershed – this rich
diversity is integral to these efforts.

We value taking responsibility for our actions, practicing humility to build trust, learning from our mistakes, and growing to become more effective.

We value interacting with each other and the community with a kind, upbeat, engaging, adventurous, and positive attitude and strive to make our
work enjoyable.


Geographic Focus

Watershed Management Group has a strong focus on improving desert ecosystems. We are based in Tucson, Arizona, and have developed deep roots and an enduring history here. We also regularly work in the Phoenix Valley, other southern Arizona communities, and in the Arizona, U.S.-Sonora, Mexico border region. Our training and community demonstration site work has also taken us to communities throughout the Desert Southwest, Mexico, and beyond.
