Anne Arundel Watershed Stewards Academy

The Anne Arundel Watershed Stewards Academy builds capacity in Anne Arundel County by training Master Watershed Stewards to help neighbors reduce pollution in local creeks and rivers.

Their hands-on certification course gives Stewards the tools to implement change in their communities, turning knowledge into action.  Stewards work with their communities to install projects such as rain gardens or conservation landscapes and to reduce pollution at its source.  Collectively, these small community based actions are improving the health of the larger Chesapeake Bay watershed.
