Healthy Watersheds through Healthy Partnerships

XWN is a peer-to-peer learning network that provides virtual and in-person venues to connect watershed practitioners to their peers across boundaries in the arid West.

Why Connect? Watershed practitioners across the arid West are finding that they can accomplish much more together than they can individually. By sharing restoration strategies and lessons learned across watersheds, well-connected practitioners work more efficiently and effectively.

What is XWN? Though restoration projects are separated by vast landscapes in the West, the programmatic and technical challenges of restoration work remain largely the same. XWN helps practitioners find each other across geographies so that they can share innovations and help each other solve real-world problems. Learn more.

Every practitioner has valuable experience to share. Add your name to the XWN Practitioner Directory. Browse the Directory and request email addresses from your peers to learn more about what’s working in their watersheds.
