We help shape the conversation about planting for clean water! Through our social media, website, resources, presence at events, and workshops, we call attention to:
- the problem of runoff and actions that people can take to address it
- clean water news and events
- the efforts of our Blue Thumb partners
- how to plant for pollinators
- how to create a more resilient yard
- the importance of native plants, trees, and shrubs
Partners also receive marketing support through their logo and brand exposure on our website, resources, and materials. Our signage, displays, and handouts are available for partners to use at events and presentations.

Blue Thumb Partners are part of a robust and diverse network. Partner meetings provide opportunities for hands-on professional development on timely topics such as turf alternatives, stormwater benefits of trees, clean water communication, and planting to protect pollinators. Partners gain a credible peer support network and expertise.
