Anacostia Wastershed Society hosts stewards program in Hyattsville
BY NADIA BARNETT — The Anacostia Watershed Society (AWS) is hosting a Watershed Stewards Academy class focusing on the Wells Run watershed, which meets Thursdays at 6:30 p.m. from Sept. 24 and runs until Nov. 14.
“The Watershed Stewards Academy equips and supports community leaders to recognize and address local pollution problems in their nearby streams and rivers,” the AWS website said.
This class will include themes such as creation care, stewardship, storm water management, and more, according to the application. There is an online application and a tuition fee of $75.
The Hyattsville class meets at the First United Methodist Church, located at 6201 Belcrest Road, which just underwent its own stormwater overhaul.
