Rock Creek Watershed Partners is a coalition of the following groups:

Mission

The mission of the Rock Creek Watershed Partners is to protect and restore a healthy watershed by motivating and enabling a community of active stewards in the basin. We accomplish this by building organizational capacity and providing support to groups and individuals who practice good stewardship.

.

Vision

We envision vibrant human and natural communities coexisting in our watershed.  Our streams contain clean, cool, clear water; are buffered by wide swaths of trees; support diverse native fish, wildlife, and plants; and are enjoyed by people through an extensive system of well-designed trails in parks and open spaces.  Large networks of citizens and businesses take responsibility for improving and maintaining water quality, quantity, habitat, and compatible recreational uses.
