Welcome to the National Capital Region Watershed Stewards Academy!

The Watershed Stewards Academy equips and supports community leaders to recognize and address local pollution problems in their nearby streams and rivers. WSA provides community leaders with the tools and resources they need to bring solutions to these problems, restoring their local waterways and the communities they affect. Each repair by each steward adds up in each and every community, with a “flood” of stewards throughout our local watersheds empowered to transform stormwater to clean water, pollution to solution, concerned resident to master steward.

Two sessions are available this fall, with one in DC and the other Prince George's County, MD.  Each course covers the same topics.
