Master Water Stewards are local volunteer leaders working to reduce urban runoff and improve Minnesota’s waters. Similar to the Master Gardener and Master Naturalist programs, Master Water Stewards, have successfully completed a rigorous certification process and are ready to work with neighbors in their communities keep water clean and healthy.
The Master Water Steward Resource Network is a group of water related professionals who support Master Water Stewards as they work with communities, local governments, and organizations throughout the Minnehaha Creek Watershed District to install pollution prevention projects on residential and commercial properties. In turn, the Master Water Stewards support your organization, increasing awareness of your organization’s specific expertise and utilizing your product or expertise to design and install residential-scale stormwater management projects- raingardens, rain barrels, green roofs, permeable pavers, holding systems, and encourage proper lawn and garden maintenance.
What are the benefits to you?
- The stewards are educating citizens about why they need your services, and then helping them use them!
- You will be included on a short list of organizations that the Stewards will use for local projects.

The Master Water Stewards program is a partnership between the Freshwater Society and the Minnehaha Creek Watershed District and sponsored by a grant from the Clean Water Land and Legacy Fund
