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; and concerned resident to master steward.
Watershed Stewards Academy is funded by the Chesapeake Bay Trust, the District Department of Energy and Environment, Prince George's Department of the Environment, the Campbell Foundation, the University of Maryland, and the National Science Foundation. For the fall 2018 semester, we give our sincerest thanks to the City of Greenbelt Public Works department for offering us the use of their space for classroom instruction.
Watershed Stewards Academy will be accepting applications for fall classes in August 2019.
