WSA's Impact Fund


The Watershed Stewards Academy is raising funds for two important initiatives, RIverWise Congregations and Steward Projects. 

With your support we can empower more congregations and provide critical support to Master Watershed Stewards as they pursue projects large and small, engaging communities across Anne Arundel County.

RiverWISE CONGREgations

WSA has certified 30 Master Watershed Stewards representing 24 congregations from around the county. These Master Watershed Stewards, along with 69 Congregational Stewards, have rallied together their houses of worship to plant 27,054 native plants making up 174 new projects.

Steward Projects

Since its inception, WSA has certified over 180 Master Watershed Stewards who represent over 100 communities stretching from Brooklyn Park to Herring Bay. In 2016 alone, Stewards:

  • Planted over 15,000 trees, shrubs, and native plants
  • Volunteered 4,500 hours 
  • Restored 651,152 sq ft of area
  • Captured nearly 10,000 gallons of runoff
  • Removed 65,000 sq ft of invasive species
