The Rocky River Watershed Council's purpose is to protect, restore and perpetuate a healthy watershed through public education, watershed planning, communication and cooperation among stakeholders. We are the only organization dedicated solely to the protection and restoration of the Rocky River Watershed.
We are a citizen-based, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to improving the aquatic quality of the Rocky River and its tributaries.

Making a tax deductible donation supports the work we do to improve the health of the Rocky River Watershed. We have individual and corporate donation options.
