Welcome to the New Jersey Watershed Ambassadors Program!
We’re thrilled to welcome the AmeriCorps New Jersey Watershed Ambassadors Program to the community of national service programs using the AmeriCorps Impact Suite.
The AmeriCorps NJ Watershed Ambassadors Program, now in its 18th year, is administered by the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection, Division of Water Monitoring & Standards. The goals of the program are to promote watershed stewardship through education and direct community involvement, and to monitor stream health through performing visual and biological assessments. Individual AmeriCorps members are assigned to each of New Jersey’s 20 watershed management areas to serve as “Watershed Ambassadors” to their watershed communities.
The program’s leadership invested in the AmeriCorps Impact Suite to significantly simplify is data collection efforts, giving staff far more time to act on and make informed decisions throughout the way.
