Deadline Tomorrow: Become a Master Water Steward

Minnehaha Creek Watershed District is recruiting for the Master Water Stewards program for this spring. This is an amazing opportunity to have a community leader get high level education on water resources to support the CARE Project. It is being piloted for the next three years in the Minnehaha Creek Watershed District, so applicants must live within the District: http://www.minnehahacreek.org/permits/am-i-district

The new Master Water Stewards program will certify and support community leaders to install pollution prevention projects that educate community members, reduce pollutants from urban runoff, and allow more water to soak into the ground before running into storm sewer systems. Modeled after successful Master Gardener programs, volunteer community leaders will participate in a 50-hour program of courses and projects. In this first year of the program, participation is limited to 25 residents of the Minnehaha Creek Watershed District. 2013 training will be offered at no cost to participants.
