Become a master water steward

Now recruiting for the next cohort of stewards! deadline: Sept 15

Do you want to protect clean water in a lake or stream you care about? The Master Water Stewards program can give you the knowledge, skills, and network to make it happen! 

The Riley Purgatory Bluff Creek Watershed District is now recruiting for the fall 2016 cohort of stewards, who start training this October.

The program offers extensive training from top industry professionals -- engineers, educators, planners and more. Participants also build a network with like-minded peers, with an emphasis on creativity and collaboration. 

Armed with that knowledge, Stewards build projects in their communities that protect water quality and work to educate their neighbors on clean water issues. Everything on city streets flows to our water – oil from cars, bacteria, salt, litter, sediment, and fertilizer. Each year, more polluted runoff reaches our lakes and rivers. Your yard is connected to rivers, lakes, and streams, and you can make a difference in keeping water clean and health. Past certified Stewards have installed raingardens, rain barrels, cisterns, and water-permeable walkways that catch polluted rainwater before it makes it to a nearby lake or stream. 

If you are interested in becoming a Master Water Steward, please visit the program website and make plans to attend an informational session. Participants must live in the watershed district district to participate.
