The SJRWI is a resource for public education and information on the watershed. We maintain a database which contains current and historical water quality monitoring data.

We present or sponsor several public educational workshops annually, including the annual Tri-State Conservation Tillage Expo. This annual event is held each spring in the Auburn, Indiana, area. The Expo brings agricultural producers together with university scientists and commercial agricultural dealers to explore the latest innovative practices and equipment for conservation tillage.

The SJRWI Annual Education Meeting & Program

Held in July, the Annual Meeting brings together board members, employees, stakeholders and public officials to celebrate the accomplishments of the previous year.

Presentations are made to the public upon request. This outreach to the community enables everyone to become more aware of what they can do to improve the water quality of the river and how the St. Joseph River Watershed Initiative can help them achieve their goals.
