For nearly 15 years, BEF has been a trusted expert in creating innovative, long-term solutions to revitalize and steward freshwater resources. We work with a wide range of foundations, watershed organizations, NGOs and corporate partners to redefine how we value, use and manage this vital resource.
While our watershed and flow restoration work has its roots in the western U.S., we recently expanded this work to watersheds in the Colorado River Basin as well as several southwest states. Our vision is to leverage our expertise and approach to support watershed partners nationwide.
To this end, in 2013 we launched a national water restoration campaign with National Geographic and Participant Media called Change the Course. This campaign catalyzes a national movement of education, conservation and restoration that seeks to redefine how industry and people value, use and manage freshwater to meet both human and environmental needs.
