Sligo Stewards

Friends of Sligo Creek have been organizing, celebrating, and working together since 2001, in order "to restore to health the water quality, natural habitat, and ecological well-being of the Sligo Creek watershed by bringing neighbors together to build awareness, improve natural habitat, and protect our community's heritage." Sligo Stewards are a vital part of this work-providing oversight, leadership, and hands-on work within the section of the Creek in which they live. There are presently 18 sections in the eight-mile mainstem of Sligo Creek, plus its tributaries, with several openings for new stewards.

The work of stewards is variable, depending on interest and time, as well as the needs of the particular section and the people who live close by. Typically:

  1. Stewards know and love their part of Sligo Creek, and they
  2. Stewards arrange (or help arrange) events in their section
  3. Stewards serve as ambassadors for Sligo Friends
