Tinker’s Creek Watershed Partners (TCWP) is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) watershed organization officially established in 2006. Our mission is to protect and restore water quality and habitats of the Tinker’s Creek and Brandywine Creek watersheds through community partnerships. The Tinker’s Creek watershed drains 96.4 square miles and is the largest tributary to the Cuyahoga River. The watershed area spans 24 communities in Cuyahoga, Summit, Portage and Geauga counties.
TCWP is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors who bring a variety of expertise in the fields of stormwater management, environmental education, engineering, natural resources conservation, planning, and economic development. TCWP is guided in their efforts to protect and restore the watershed and educate the public by four Ohio and U.S. EPA endorsed nonpoint source implementation strategic plans (NPS-IS Plans). Each plan encompasses a subset of the Tinker’s Creek watershed and Brandywine Creek watershed. They can be found under the Information tab.
TCWP also just recently completed a new 5-year strategic plan. Our objectives from that plan are:
- Apply the latest science to effectively implement watershed health initiatives
- Become a community engagement hub
- Extend and facilitate private and public collaborations
- Develop and implement a fundraising strategy
- Develop and implement a marketing and communications strategy
- Align structures and capacities with our mission and fiscal goals
