Mission Statement

Wholly H2O catalyzes dynamic, informed connections between people and their watersheds via community and citizen science, art & green infrastructure education.


What about reimagining watersheds as neighborhoods large and small literally Waterhoods? In order to deal with climate change, we have a great need for people to get reconnected to the ecosystems and their waterhoods so that we have a better understanding of what we ALL need - humans other animals and plants together. Rather than seeing the natural world, of which we are a part, as a series of resources to extract, we’re encouraging you to get to know your waterhood and all your neighbors.
