Watershed stewardship program now under way The Delaware Nature Society, in partnership with the Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control, Divi- sion of Soil and Water, has an- nounced the establishment of the Watershed Stewardship Program. This grassroots education and outreach program is designed to meet the needs of watershed stew- ardship goals statewide. Citizens, educators, youths and corporate landowners throughout Delaware will engage in strategies to reduce nonpoint source pollu- tion resulting in better land man- agement within the state bound- aries. Currently the biggest threat to the nation's water is not pollution from industry, but pollution .from yards, farms, roadways and con- struction sites. Called nonpoint source pollu- tion because it comes from so many sources, it occurs when sed- iments, sewage, pet waste, fertil- izers and pesticides are carried in- to our local streams and rivers from rainwater runoff. Water runs over the land, con- nects with the pollutants, and de- posits them into nearby rivers or streams. This new program is an expansion of the Soil Watch Pro- gram coordinated by the society for the past four years in New Castle County. The objectives of the Soil Stewardship Program will be extended statewide to recog- nize and promote environmentally sensitive land development prac- tices, and resource protection ef- forts. Other new objectives for the program will include reaching un- deserved populations through an expanded NatureLink program at the Society's Coverdale Farm and Abbott's Mill Nature Center offering field experiences and outreach to urban populations. General and specific target pop- ulations and school groups statewide will share in instruction- al materials and publications, en- richment and recognition events. The Watershed Stewardship Pro- gram will be expanded to include a back yard habitat and conserva- tion segment targeting homeown- ers. corporate landowners, and owners of professionally managed grohnds. They will have the op- portuntty to participate in and pro- mote environmentally sensitive site design when tailoring the land to Delaware's habitat and water quality goals.
