Watershed Stewards Academy is recruiting applicants for our upcoming Master Watershed Steward Certification Course. The course will begin in October and consist of approximately 12-15 sessions.
Master Watershed Stewards are trained to work within their neighborhoods to address the problem of stormwater pollution coming from private property. Stewards work at the community grass-roots level to introduce behaviors and projects that clean this polluted water on private properties.
