Watershed Warrior Program

Is your group looking for a way to foster the next generation of lake stewards in your community? If “yes” consider bring the Watershed Warrior Program to your next association family-friendly event, community festival, or local school or summer camp!

The NH LAKES Watershed Warrior program is designed for youth and their families to “take action” to keep lakes and watersheds healthy. Traveling through the stationWatershedWarriorPatchFINALs of the Watershed Warrior activity circuit, participants experience hands-on fun while learning about lake ecology and simple everyday things that people can do to help keep lakes healthy. At the end of the circuit, participants have the opportunity to become a “Watershed Warrior” by pledging to incorporate at least one lake-friendly practice into their daily routine. All Watershed Warriors earn a multicolored patch and certificate.

“The materials are good and user friendly. Love the take action section – great for kids.” – Sue, Eastman Lakes & Streams Committee

NH LAKES thanks the Dorr Foundation for their support of this program.
