Do you want to become a watershed expert? Looking to boost your educational or environmental portfolio? Want to make a difference in your community? Register for NSRWA’s new Stewardship Certificate Program. You’ll discover all about South Shore coastal habitats and explore your own interests and passion for the environment as you complete a Watershed Stewardship Project in your local community.

To begin the program, you’ll have a meeting with members of the NSRWA team discussing your environmental or science based interests and future goals. The NSRWA will work with you to develop a personalized action plan that goes along with your curiosity and fits into your schedule.

The early phases of the program will entail viewing a series of short videos produced by the NSRWA, highlighting the valuable and diverse habitats found across the South Shore. Topics include salt marshes, coastal dunes, estuaries, herring runs, tidal zones, fresh water tributaries, wetlands, and barrier beaches. Or the NSRWA can help you create a video of your own as part of the project! Here’s a sample video created by the NSRWA:

Next, you’ll work in collaboration with the NSRWA to create and complete a meaningful service project that will benefit your environment, community, as well as your educational and professional future. The NSRWA will support you with guidance, materials, and equipment  to help you towards your goal. The program is individualized as it is designed around your interests. Students will walk away excited for their environment, educated about local ecology, engaged in discovery, and empowered to take action!

The Stewardship Certificate will be a powerful addition to a resume or college application for a student interested and passionate about exploring the possibilities within a coastal, marine, outdoor, or environmental career.
