AmeriCorps NJ Watershed Ambassadors Program NOW RECRUITING!

Tuesday, August 06, 2019



The New Jersey Watershed Ambassadors Program is an environmental stewardship-oriented AmeriCorps program designed to raise awareness about water concerns.

Ambassadors serve with all sectors of society to improve the quality of New Jersey’s waterways by: educating the public on watershed science and encouraging them to get involved in local stewardship actions; implementing community green infrastructure and stewardship projects through partnering with local organizations and community volunteers; and performing habitat and biological assessments following DEP monitoring protocols to monitor the health of their WMA’s streams.

Throughout the program, extensive training in highly sought-after skills in the environmental field is provided, including ArcGIS, fieldwork experience, grant writing, project management, green infrastructure and science communication.
