Trail Creek Watershed Partnership, Society of Innovators Member 2016-2017


The Trail Creek Watershed Partnership is a unique partnership to reduce the negative impacts on the watershed through cooperation across multiple organizations. Through education, grants and a cost-sharing program, individuals and organizations began to apply “best management practices.” Included were planting cover crops, building bioswales, rain gardens, installing a permanent animal manure diversion system. Nearly 5,000 elementary and high school students had hands-on experiences. Funding came from a $160,000 grant that was matched by another $110,000, making this the first time this many partners came together for this purpose. The Unity Foundation of La Porte County is the founder of the unique partnership to benefit Lake Michigan. To learn more visit
