Indiana Watershed Group Finder

Background: The Indiana Watershed Group Finder helps you find watershed groups anywhere in Indiana. "Watershed groups" are defined as anyone actively working with a watershed focus, including watershed-focused organizations (such as Friends of the St. Joe River or Wabash River Enhancement Corporation), and also projects through SWCDs (such as Washington County SWCD Mill Creek-Blue River Watershed Project).

Instructions: Locate a watershed group(s) by searching below, either (A) by selecting a HUC layer then clicking on the map, or (B) by entering a HUC, waterbody name, county, group name, or keyword, and clicking on the SEARCH button. Then click on the highlighted area on the map to see groups that are active in that area. Basic contact information is provided to allow you to contact the group for more information.

Option A: Search by clicking on the map. First select which Hydrologic Unit Code (HUC) layer to use in searching, then click within a HUC to see watershed group information. Click "None" before using search options under (B).
