Whidbey Watershed Stewards, whidbeywatersheds.org, is a 501c(3) non-profit organization working to promote watershed stewardship, habitat enhancement, and environmental education for all ages. Whidbey Watershed Stewards promotes nearshore and watershed health by linking water, land, wildlife and people on Whidbey Island through education, research, and restoration
People can volunteer with us through our education programs, citizen science projects or on one of our restoration sites.
- We operate the Maxwelton Outdoor Classroom, bringing elementary age children from across the island to participate in exploring the outdoors.
- This year, we will be bringing salmon back to the classroom by raising fry in a an aquarium at South Whidbey Elementary School, and releasing the fish into Maxwelton Creek. Stay tuned for more information in January of 2014.
- By participating in salmon recovery, watershed protection and public engagement, we help to protect our rural island and wildlife that we all enjoy.
