Fresh water is Earth’s most precious resource. We all use it every day and can all have an impact on the ability to provide reliable supplies of clean water now and for future generations.
Become a steward of our local waters with our new course! Water Stewards is developed in partnership with Sustain Dane, the Madison Metropolitan Sewerage District, the Madison Area Municipal Storm Water Partnership, the Madison Water Utility, and the Dane County Land and Water Resources Department.
Friday, September 15, 9:00 AM—12:30PM
This program will be in person at StartingBlock Madison located at 821 E Washington Ave 2nd floor, Madison, WI 53703. We will meet on the second floor in the Digital Den, but please wait at the front desk for our greeter to escort you upstairs.
About the Water Steward Course
Participants will learn about how our local water system works and the human impact on water. You will also gain knowledge and skills about practical actions to conserve, protect, restore, and advocate for our local water systems. Learn the ins and outs of our local water system and get your water questions answered.
The program will give you the tools you need to implement water conservation, protection, and restoration actions in your life. To fully complete the program and receive the water steward certification, participants will complete a water action of their choosing with the support of Sustain Dane. Actions include planting a downspout garden, teaching your community what you learned, installing efficient water fixtures, and much more!
Water Stewards is based on the education and project model developed as part of the award-winning Sustain Dane recycling course.
