Whether you are a streamside landowner, an environmental professional, or a student, it is the mission of the Streams and Watersheds Outreach program at the School of Environment and Natural Resources (SENR), to help you protect, restore and enhance Ohio streams and watersheds.  To stay informed, learn more and interact with others about healthy streams and watersheds visit Ohio Watershed Network.
