New Jersey Watershed Ambassadors Program Title

The New Jersey Watershed Ambassadors Program is a community-oriented AmeriCorps environmental program coordinated by the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection and is designed to raise awareness about watersheds in New Jersey. Through this program, AmeriCorps members are placed in watershed management areas across the state to serve the educational water-related interests of their local communities. The program invited all ages of citizens to improve the quality of New Jersey's waterways and water quaility.

  • Watershed Ambassadors monitor the rivers of New Jersey through volunteer monitoring programs. The AmeriCorps leaders are used to train community volunteers to use these two monitoring techniques in order to assess the health of waterways within their communities.

  • Watershed Ambassadors make presentations to schools and community organizations for free. These interactive presentations explore water quality and watershed related topics in New Jersey.

Target Audience(s)
General public, organizations, educators, students of all ages
