A New Hampshire lake during summer

The Watershed Warrior Program

Covid-19 Update: We have made the difficult decision not to offer the Watershed Warrior family-friendly activity circuit this summer as community gatherings will likely not be held for the foreseeable future due to the coronavirus. We look forward to seeing you as soon as safely possible!

Is your group looking for a way to inspire the next generation of lake care takers in your community? Bring the Watershed Warrior Program to your next community event!

How the Program Works:

Participants travel through the six activity stations. They experience hands-on fun while learning about lake ecology and simple everyday things that can be done to help keep lakes healthy. At the end of the circuit, participants have the opportunity to become a ‘Watershed Warrior’ by pledging to do at least one lake-friendly activity daily.

All Watershed Warriors earn a multicolored patch and certificate. The program can be tailored to the age of your group (programs can be adapted K-12) and your event schedule.
