Stream Stewards training, July 19 through Aug. 23

“Registration open - space limited
Class starts Thursday July 19th and runs through August 23rd

Are you interested in learning more about our forest ecosystems and our connection to them? The annual Stream Stewards training course takes you deep into the forest where you learn from local experts about watersheds, wetlands, stream ecology, aquatic insects, native plants, invasive species, conservation, restoration and clean water practices. The course includes classroom sessions and field trips. You'll have plenty of time to interact with the instructors and other trainees. Once you've completed the course, for those who are interested, you can apply to become a Stream Steward volunteer.

Training sessions are held on Thursdays, July 19 through August 23, 2018 from 9am - 3pm.
The classroom sessions run from 9am-noon followed by field trips from 1pm - 3pm.
Cost: $50
Location: Eagles Nest & Island Lake

Note about missed classes: If you will miss a class this session, you can make it up at a future training at no cost. Alumni are welcome to come for refresher sessions, or to make up missed sessions from their training course, both at no charge.”
