The Vermillion River Watershed Joint Powers Organization (VRWJPO) invites residents to become Master Water Stewards (MWS). The MWS program provides training and opportunities for residents to protect and improve water quality and habitat.
Freshwater Society developed the program in 2013. The VRWJPO is one of many watershed organizations sponsoring the MWS classes.
The cost to enroll in the program in the Vermilion River Watershed is $125 per person, which covers course fees and field trips. The cost will be reimbursed to participants upon certification as a Master Water Steward. Scholarships may be available for situations of demonstrated financial hardship.
Attend an informational session (required) – Sept. 5, 5:30-6:30 p.m. at the Dakota County Western Service Center, room 334, 14955 Galaxie Ave, Apple Valley or any other date/location; see the Master Water Stewards website for other sessions.
