The AmeriCorps New Jersey Watershed Ambassadors Program is going into its 17th year. This program gives 20 college graduates each year the opportunity to raise awareness about the importance of watersheds and environmental stewardship, and to channel that awareness into action within their communities. The chosen participants monitor the stream health of their assigned watershed by performing visual and biological assessments. Kathy Giordano, coordinator for the Watershed Ambassador program, joins Bob Bostock to discuss this program and the incredible opportunities that it provides.
