Habitat Steward Training
DUE TO A HIGH VOLUME OF REGISTRATIONS, WE WILL BE CLOSING THE REGISTRATION PERIOD ON 12/15 AT THE END OF THE DAY.
Are you interested in creating areas for wildlife? Do you want to share your passion for wildlife with others in your community? Do you want to make a difference starting with your own backyard?
NOW IS YOUR CHANCE TO BECOME A HABITAT STEWARD!
NWF is offering a specialized 24-hour training to teach you how help others to create and restore wildlife habitat in backyards, schoolyards, and other private and public areas. This program is engaging, fun and highly informative and you get to meet and interact with local conservation professionals and other similarly interested folks!
Benefits include: an NWF volunteer t-shirt, 24 hours of hands-on training, engaging field trips, a comprehensive training manual with local resources, and instruction from local professionals.
Expert speakers will present on topics such as:
Native Plant Gardening
Sustainable Gardening Practices
Gardening for Wildlife
Classes will be held every Thursday in January from 6:00-9:00pm at the Thurston County Courthouse (Building 1, Room 280, 2000 Lakeridge Dr. SW, Room 280, Olympia, WA 98502). Field trip sessions will be held on two Saturdays (January 14th and TBD), plan on a full day!
A 30-hour volunteer commitment within a year after the training is required. We will provide coffee, tea, and snacks at each training session and you are welcome to bring a brown bag dinner.
