The MWS program (formerly known as Master Water Stewards) trains and certifies community members who volunteer with watershed districts, cities, counties, and environmental groups to improve the health of our waters. Freshwater, a nonprofit inspiring and empowering people to value and preserve our freshwater resources, runs the program.

A cohort of the MWS program are artists who have created public art that educates and inspires awareness about water issues. This art ranges from a coloring book to decorated storm drains to art created from found objects—and more!
