In "Gather the Spirit," a Tapestry of Faith program
Tell the group what you have learned about your local watershed and the local efforts to protect water resources. Invite participants to engage with organizations outside of Unitarian Universalism in the stewardship of shared water. Say in your own words:
The Adopt a Watershed program is a way the government encourages community responsibility for water stewardship. We can join the Environmental Protection Agency and others who are working locally to protect and restore our valuable rivers, streams, wetlands, lakes, ground water, and estuaries. Some of the activities we could do are volunteer water-monitoring, stream clean-ups and making storm drains.
Help the group determine how they wish to get involved in local Adopt a Watershed activities. Decide on action steps and identify volunteers to pursue them—for example, inviting a guest speaker from a local water protection organization or arranging for the group to join an already scheduled local water resource clean-up.
