The Watershed Stewards Academy, a program of the Arlington Echo Outdoor Education Center, trains and supports leaders called Master Watershed Stewards to engage their communities in practices that reduce pollution and restore our waterways.
Spring Into Action conference is designed to provide opportunities for Master Watershed Stewards, the WSA Consortium of Support Professionals, and interested community members to network, share the latest watershed restoration techniques and explore outreach methods that benefit the Chesapeake Watershed. This year’s conference features 6 tracks, including Outdoors and Hands on, featuring field trips to a nearby park and restoration project and a hands-on invasive species control workshop; Restoration Maintenance and Design, featuring sessions that provide guidance on design, planning and maintenance of restoration projects large and small; and Reaching Beyond the Choir, including innovative ways to engage our neighbors and friends in helping to restore our waterways.
