Celebrate Invasive Species Awareness Week Sunday, June 6 - Saturday June 12, 2021

Join the Adirondack Watershed Institue for the 2021 New York Invasive Species Awareness Week - Junior Adirondack Watershed Steward Program.

Designed for elementary and middle school students (ages 7-12), this program gives your child the opportunity to visit their local ​Adirondack boat launch and interact with a Watershed Steward. They will observe a boat inspection and interview a​n ​Adirondack Watershed Institute boat steward in your local community. Your family can learn about invasive species and ways ​in which Adirondack lakes are being protected. Your child will be asked to reflect on their experience and share pictures on our project board and in return will earn a AWI Junior Steward Certificate.

This program is free of charge and requires approximately 2 hours of time to prepare for and visit a local ​Adirondack boat launch during Invasive Species Awareness Week (depending on your proximity to an official launch - ​see the list below).

Upon registration, you will receive your Junior Watershed Steward kit with clear instructions, materials and confirmation about visiting your local launch.
