Master Watershed Steward Program

York County

The Penn State Extension Master Watershed Steward Program in York County was launched in 2016. Two classes have completed the training, and they are now making a difference in York County! We will begin training a third class in 2018. We are looking for 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. So whether you are a teacher, an accountant, a construction worker, a homemaker, a student, or have another background, YOU can become a Master Watershed Steward.

To become a certified Master Watershed Steward, you must complete 40 hours of training and fulfill 50 hours of volunteer service. 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.

The 2018 training program will be held on weeknights March-May. Sessions will be held at partnering environmental organizations throughout York County. The curriculum also features three hands-on Saturday field trips. Cost is $125 to cover training fees and materials.
