We are now accepting applications for the next class of Master Water Stewards! Since Freshwater launched the Master Water Stewards program in 2013, 250 Stewards have gone through the program and are volunteering their time for watershed districts, cities, and environmental groups; participating on city and local government boards; influencing policy; and improving the health of our waters. To date, they have:
- Connected with thousands of people through outreach and educational events
- Installed or planned over 100 projects, including rain gardens, rain barrels, cisterns, dry creek beds, permeable pavers, lakeshore and habitat restorations
- Prevented millions of gallons of polluted stormwater runoff from entering our lakes, rivers, and creeks each year!
Ask us to talk to your neighborhood, church, or club to find out more about Master Water Stewards.
