St. Mary's County Watershed Stewards Academy

Are you looking to improve local water quality?


The Watershed Stewards Academy (WSA) is a great opportunity to learn how to solve stormwater problems in your community and join a local network of energized leaders!

Started in 2016, University of Maryland Extension in partnership with St. Mary's County government offers stewards hands-on and classroom training in a diverse range of topics including: watershed processes, stormwater best management practice installation and maintenance, native plants, project funding and permitting, community engagement, and much more!

St. Mary's County Watershed Stewards visit a bioretention pond on the stormwater tour.
