Through the Stewardship program, we hope to directly improve water quality and connect individuals to their waterways.

Over the past 3 years, the campaign has engaged over 2,000 volunteers at 80 Watershed Action Events and has spent 7,500 hours transforming trashed, neglected, and inaccessible public spaces into clean, safe, and vibrant areas through river, stream, and beach cleanups, invasive species removals, and native planting events.

Over the next two years, we plan to double the amount of volunteer hours we coordinate, increase the number of locations where we hold service events, and better our tracking methods to showcase our volunteers’ successes.

We will work to empower volunteers to “adopt” waterway locations, encourage ownership of neglected public spaces, and provide individuals the opportunity to become long-term stewards of specific sites.
