Training Community Leaders for Watershed Protection
Now Recruiting for Fall 2021 Classes

WSA Logo

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. Participants become Master Watershed Stewards when they complete the courseworkand an approved capstone project.

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; and concerned resident to master steward.
