Stewards VISTA: Middle Rio Urban Waters Partnership
 
 
 
The MRG Urban Waters partnership initially used the mission, vision, and principles of the National Urban Waters Partnership to guide their work. During the March 2019 strategic planning meeting, participants added to, refined and restructured these principles to establish local goals for the Partnership. The goals are organized under four distinct core program themes. A project can be designated as an “Urban Waters project” if it corresponds with at least two of the following four themes: Theme 1: Invest in Healthy Watersheds Theme 2: Engage in Education and Outreach Theme 3: Facilitate Economic Revitalization and Prosperity Theme 4: Foster Active Collaboration and True Partnerships
