Meet the 2014 Bush Prize Winners

Cannon River
Watershed Partnership
is one of them!!!
Having a great idea is one thing....


....actually making it happen is quite another. Ten diverse organizations, including the Cannon River Watershed Partnership, have demonstrated an ability to combine innovative ideas with effective action.

These organizations have been awarded the 2014 Bush Prize for Community Innovation.

The Bush Prize honors and supports organizations with a proven record of creating innovative solutions that address community challenges and opportunities. Winners are chosen for using inclusive, collaborative processes that make the most of community assets, and for developing innovations that are more effective, equitable or sustainable than existing approaches.

“Each of this year’s Bush Prize winners has a remarkable story of innovation to share, and collectively they are a testament to the power of inclusive, collaborative and resourceful problem-solving,” said Bush Foundation President Jennifer Ford Reedy. “We are thrilled to provide them with creative capital to tackle their next big idea.”

CRWP has prevented 94 million gallons of untreated sewage from entering the state’s rivers and streams over the past decade through its collaborative work on the Southeast Minnesota Wastewater Initiative that brings residents and wastewater professionals together in 21 southeast Minnesota communities.

Cannon River Watershed Partnership
In 1990 a small group of citizens came together because of their shared concerns for clean water and the conviction that they needed to do something to protect the Cannon River. From the dream of our founding members, the Cannon River Watershed Partnership has grown into a well respected, member-based,
501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization.


Our Mission:  To engage people in protecting and improving the water quality and natural systems of the Cannon River watershed.

Our Vision:  CRWP envisions a healthy watershed with clean water that is fishable, swimmable, and drinkable.
