Thank You & Season’s Greetings from Downstream

To All Our Conservation Partners and Supporters,

Can you believe it’s been 15 years since we launched The Downstream Project? What started as a simple website to promote George’s 2007 documentary Shenandoah: Voices of the River has grown into a powerful voice for water and land conservation throughout the Chesapeake Bay Watershed and beyond.

Most recently, we are working far upstream, all the way to Lake Michigan. The Tip of the Mitt Watershed Council, an influential conservation organization in Petoskey, Michigan, decided that our creative web development services, WaterWatch program, and technology assistance would be invaluable as they care for the 1,800 lakes and 3,000 miles of rivers and streams in their impressive service area. Tip of the Mitt will be joining the Downstream Network of over 50 conservation partners who benefit from, and continue to support, our mission: Protecting watersheds by promoting awareness, alliance, and action through creative technology and communication.

With your help, we can also offer our services at significantly reduced rates or on a pro bono basis to nonprofit conservation groups who could not otherwise afford them. Your tax-deductible contribution to our mission will continue to help us help them.

Yours in conservation, service, and friendship,

George Ohrstrom II
