Do you want to be a leader in your community, and help implement fresh ideas for protecting clean water?
The Riley Purgatory Bluff Creek Watershed District is now recruiting for the fall 2017 cohort of Master Water Stewards with training starting this October.
Master Water Stewards is a volunteer education and outreach program designed by the Freshwater Society, a Saint Paul-based non-profit dedicated to the conservation, protection, and restoration of all freshwater resources. This program is designed to equip participants with the knowledge and skills needed to help improve water quality at the grassroots level.
This program offers extensive training from top industry professionals, along with the chance at building a network with like-minded peers, with an emphasis on creativity and collaboration.
Past projects created by MWS have helped remove 543 pounds of sediment pollution, and 2.96 pounds of phosphorus annually from stormwater headed for local water bodies. They also help 1,162,084 gallons of water soak into the ground every year. To learn more about the other ways that the MWS are helping to protect Minnesota's water, check out their annual report from 2016.
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 to participate.
