Backyard Habitat Steward Training
April 10, 2013 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Snohomish Conservation District and the National Wildlife Federation are offering a Habitat Steward Training in Stanwood in Spring 2013. The program provides a host of great speakers, interesting ﬁeld trips and the opportunity to complete a project with the support of local experts. This nationwide program’s goal is to train volunteers to mentor children; work with schools and local groups; and restore, maintain and create wildlife habitat.
Class participants will learn the basics of providing food, water, cover and habitat for wildlife to raise their young. Local experts will teach about native plants, streams and wetlands, adding perch poles and more. A notebook from the National Wildlife Federation is provided to each participant. Their is no charge for the program but space is limited to 40 people.
Hands on Project Help
You pick a project in your own community and the stewards project team will help you plan and implement it over the course of one year. The Habitat Stewards program is a great opportunity to give back to your community, meet new people, and learn more about wildlife and their needs.
Classes – please NOTE – there is a drop down menu with these dates, you must register for EACH class and field trip in order to get a reminder and map in your email box prior to each event. Sorry~we would prefer to have everyone register once, for all six events, but it doesn’t appear to be an option at this point.
