Individuals that have an interest in the environment, a willingness to learn more, and most importantly, a strong desire to make a difference in the community are excellent candidates for the program. To become a certified Master Watershed Steward, you must complete 40 hours of training and fulfill 50 hours of volunteer service within the first year. After becoming certified, you can maintain your status by giving at least 20 volunteer hours and attending at least 10 hours of continuing education annually.

Our program will likely not train again until spring of 2020, but if you are interested in participating, contact Erin Frederick at elf145@psu.edu or 610-391-9840.
