Certification Courses are offered annually, beginning in the fall of each year, and include 12 classroom and field sessions spanning approximately 5 months. Topics include Rainscaping techniques, pollution reduction strategies, community outreach and engagement, funding, and many others. Following the coursework, each Master Watershed Steward completes a Capstone Project, including outreach and education, a community stormwater assessment and action to reduce pollutants and infiltrate stormwater. For more information, see the Certification Information on the right.
As a Master Watershed Steward, you can help improve the health of the watershed. You will become a resource for your family, friends and community. In addition, you will have the opportunity to work with other Stewards and professionals to restore your watershed through ongoing projects with neighborhood schools, churches and businesses. Being a Master Watershed Steward is fun, and rewarding!
