If you have an interest in the environment and the water we drink, a willingness to learn, and most importantly, a strong desire to make a different in the community, Penn State Extension's Master Watershed Steward Program may be a good fit for you! Don't miss out--Montgomery County's 2019 Master Watershed Stewar Basic Training starts April 11th. 

The Master Watershed Steward program is a volunteer opportunity that offers 50 hours of training for ordinary citizens on numerous environmental topics including:

  • Water quality
  • Stream health
  • Native plants
  • Habitat
  • Recreation
  • Groundwater
  • And much more!

No prior watershed knowledge is required to become a Steward! After finishing the Basic Training course, trainees must complete 50 hours of volunteer service within their first year to beome a certified Master Watershed Stewar. Potential volunteer projects include organizing stream cleanups, designing and installing demonstration rain gardens, and organizing education workshops. In subsequent years, Stewards maintain their status by completing at least 20 volunteer hours and attending at least 10 hours of continuing education.

Montgomery County's Basic Training will run from April 11 - July 11 on Thursday evenings from 5:45pm - 8:30pm and also includes two Saturday field trips! Classes will be held at the Montgomery County Extension office and at partnering environmental organizations throughout the region. Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis until March 11, 2019. This is the final public information session for anyone who would like to learn more about the upcoming training for the program.
