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; and concerned resident to master steward.

Watershed Stewards Academy is funded by the District Department of Energy and Environment (DOEE), Campbell Foundation, the University of Maryland, and the National Science Foundation. 

UPDATE: Due to current emergency health crisis, WSA classes will be held online during the spring session. We are still accepting applications for spring classes. The deadline to apply will be 11:59pm on May 10, 2020.
