Two publication series were developed by the Watershed Institute and the Stony Brook-Millstone Watershed Association to assist watershed groups in becoming independent and self sustaining organizations. All publications in these series are free to NJ groups, while supplies last!

The Setting and Maintaining the Right Course is a series of publications written for non-profit organizations and those interested in forming a non-profit organization. Its purpose is to convey detailed information on how to start and build the capacity of a non-profit group, with emphasis on watershed associations. The goal is to provide capacity building tools and resources, allowing groups to perform vital work to protect their local watershed's health.

The Watershed Protection: A How-To Series models these watershed management programs. By sharing our knowledge and experiences, we seek to provide resources which other organizations can use to protect the landscapes and natural resources that we cherish and need. Unlike most models based solely on theory, these models take a unique approach and present theory that is grounded in practical experience and action. The models raise theoretical questions, provide examples and describe concrete steps taken by Stony Brook.
