How about a watershed class this fall?


Did you find yourself worrying about your neighborhood creek or stream during the recent storms?  Do you want to learn more about what you can do to make our waterways healthier?  If so, it sounds like you should sign up for the Anacostia Watershed Society’s National Capital Region Watershed Stewards Academy!

Become a Certified Master Watershed Steward by enrolling in this 8-course session which will educate and empower you to serve as a leader in your community on watershed issues and solutions.

Master Watershed Stewards work with their communities to:

  • Assess Watersheds: Identify 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 techniques.

If you have questions or are interested in participating, please contact Matt Gallagher at mgallagher@anacostiaws.org or 301-699-6204 ext. 115
