The Watershed Stewards Academy (WSA) is a training program to empower residents to improve the water quality of local streams. By sharing resources, forming partnerships, and coordinating efforts, WSA works with a Consortium of Support Professionals, Master Watershed Stewards and their communities to reduce pollutants, infiltrate stormwater and restore natural systems. Currently, the Watershed Steward Academy is in Anne Arundel County, Howard County, the National Capital region, Cecil County and St. Mary's County, with a new program coming to Harford County in September 2017.
The Academy provides Stewards with knowledge and expertise from lecturers, training in using watershed assessment tools for analyzing stormwater runoff, and hands-on experience leading stormwater management and behavior change projects. A consortium of experienced stormwater management practitioners provides Stewards with on-going support for their community projects. Stewards become community leaders in reducing harmful effects of polluted stormwater running off into our streams.
