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.
For the last 25 years, the Watershed Masters Program was a 40 hour program that required people attend all or most of the workshops, then in return for the free education, participants were required to donate 40 hours of their time volunteering in things that promote water quality. It has been a wonderfully successful program, but in the hope of involving some of the busier groups of people, we are removing the requirements. Now, there is no penalty for being unable to attend a workshop and there is no requirement to return volunteer hours.

An investment in the land is an investment in the future.
