You love our Chesapeake Watershed. You love your neighborhood. Why not bring those two passions together and become an Anne Arundel County Watershed Steward.
The Anne Arundel County Watershed Stewards Academy (WSA) is recruiting the next class — the 14th — right now. You can be part of it and of this amazing environmental group that truly feels like family.
What’s a Master Watershed Steward?
Watershed Stewards serve Anne Arundel County communities by installing landscape projects that reduce pollution and by organizing campaigns to encourage habits that make a difference. Collectively, these community-based actions reduce pollution at its source and improve the health of the entire Chesapeake Bay. And it’s fun!
You don’t have to be an expert, WSA and graduated Master Watershed Stewards will show you the way. WSA provides a great opportunity to learn how to solve environmental problems in your own community and find a local network of energized leaders. This is hands-on, fun training that culminates with a research-based certification and a Capstone Project of your own design. Graduates will have obtained the tools to implement change in their communities, turning knowledge into action.
The 2021-2022 course session runs from this October to next April. Typically, the commitment is for virtual classes once a week or less and field sessions on certain weekends. Learn more.
There are two more information sessions offered before the application deadline of September 24 — September 14 and September 22.
Do it! You’ll be so glad you did.
