At UpstreamPgh, we work to identify smart solutions for our environment that help people live better lives. With a heritage of restoration and stewardship of the Nine Mile Run Watershed, and strong leadership in stormwater management, our actions are rooted in our belief that a healthy ecology is the cornerstone of a healthy community.
We work to connect people with nature for a positive impact on the environment. From schoolchildren to municipal leaders, scientists to citizens, volunteers to homeowners, a healthy community starts with education, outreach and engagement.
Our watershed, our stream, our urban tree canopy, our ecosystem. They all deserve a voice. We work to advance new ideas that create change by advocating for policies and practices that further the health of our environment.
As a regional leader in stormwater management, we work with municipalities, homeowners, private organizations and public entities on services and infrastructure projects that are effective, environmentally responsible, and yes, beautiful.
