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! 

What began as a three-year pilot program in Minnehaha Creek Watershed District through a partnership with The Freshwater Society, has now expanded throughout the Metro and greater MN. We are currently accepting applications for the Fall 2017 class of Stewards.  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 plan to attend this informational session.  Additional informational sessions can be found at www.masterwaterstewards.org   For more information or if you have questions, please contact Education Manager Darren Lochner (952-641-4524).
