Master Watershed Stewards serve Anne Arundel County communities by installing landscape projects that reduce pollution and 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.

In addition to Steward training, participants choose to receive additional training in either RainScaping or Environmental Literacy.

You don’t have to be an expert, we'll show you the way!  The Watershed Stewards Academy is a great opportunity to learn how to solve environmental problems in your community and find a local network of energized leaders. Our hands-on, research-based certification course gives Stewards the tools to implement change in their communities, turning knowledge into action.

Becoming part of WSA moved me from talk to action and gave me a source of experts and support people to assist with action.
