Seven citizens dedicated to improving the health of local streams graduated on November 9, 2021 from the Harford County Master Watershed Stewards Academy, a program developed by Harford’s Watershed Protection and Restoration Office in cooperation with the University of Maryland Sea Grant Extension Office.

Master watershed stewards are trained community leaders who identify pollutants, educate their neighbors about stream health, and take actions to reduce human impacts on water quality. 

Participants in the Harford County program were chosen following an application and interview process announced in August 2019. Classes were held at Harford Community College in Bel Air; the program included local fieldtrips and class projects. Graduation was delayed due to the pandemic.
