The Watershed Stewards Program (WSP) is dedicated to improving watershed health by actively engaging in restoration science, civic service, and community education while empowering the next generation of environmental stewards.
For over 25 years, the Watershed Stewards Program (WSP) has been engaged in comprehensive, community-based, watershed restoration and education throughout coastal California. WSP places its Corpsmembers with scientists at environmental organizations around the state to assist with watershed data collection and analysis, as well as restoration project development and maintenance. Ultimately, Corpsmembers serve with WSP to help bring threatened and endangered salmonids back to healthy populations by improving watershed health. WSP Corpsmembers also provide watershed education to students at lower-income public schools using the program’s watershed science curriculum, and recruit community volunteers to tackle watershed restoration projects that local organizations might not otherwise have the resources to complete.
