Watershed Masters Program
The Watershed Masters Program is a free program for community residents sponsored by City of Anacortes, City of Burlington, City of Mount Vernon, City of Sedro-Woolley, and Skagit county, and Skagit Conservation District.
The Watershed Masters Program was established in 1995 as a result of the Watershed Planning process. It has fostered partnerships between the community and numerous local agencies and organizations who collaborate on projects and learn from each other. Working together to protect our land, our water, and our communities.
A big shout out to our 2023 Watershed Masters who completed our 2023 workshops with enthusiasm.
Thanks for making this year great!
During our 6 classroom evening sessions, 3 field trips, and 1 music festival, this year’s group learned about our local shellfish resources, invasive “Green” crab identification, and the various life cycles and habitat needs of our local salmon populations. They got the latest information on the climate change impacts and solutions on water quality and riparian planting as well as the importance of estuaries, forests, and beavers. Our final session was on Low Impact Development techniques that benefit all of us, which everyone seemed eager to start implementing.
These workshops were so awesome that we’re planning to do it again next fall.
I hope to see you then!
An investment in the land is an investment in the future.
