If you are willing to assume an active role with a strong commitment to improving the environment and the quality of life in your community, we invite you to apply to the Watershed Stewards Academy and become a Master Watershed Steward!

Visit www.ncr-wsa.org for more details

Master Watershed Stewards work with their communities to:

Assess Watersheds– identify their pollutant sources and create strategies for reducing these pollutants.

Educate Communities– help neighbors understand the most pressing environmental problems in their area.

Reduce Pollutants– work with communities to target pollution sources such as pet waste, fertilizer or pesticides.

Coordinate Action– help communities reduce the polluted runoff by coordinating the installation of rain gardens, rain barrels and other Rainscaping/Riversmart techniques.

Please join us at any of the following informational sessions:

  • Thursday, August 23 6:30pm
  • Tuesday, September 11 6:30pm
  • Thursday, September 13, 6:30pm

3935 Benning Rd. N.E. Washington DC 20019

Applications are due September 15th. For more information, contact Lee Cain at lcain@anacostiaws.org 301.699.6204 or Fajr Chestnut at fajr@grounworkdc.org 202.506.1391 or visit www.ncr-wsa.org.

Participants become Master Watershed Stewards by completing the 14-session course (see attached schedule) and completing a Capstone Project that will reduce pollution at its source while engaging the community in the process. Most classes will be held at a location near the Minnesota metro stop (location to be determined).
