Backyard Habitat Steward Training
Snohomish Conservation District and the National Wildlife Federation are offering a Habitat Steward Training in Stanwood in April 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. Beneﬁts 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. There 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.
Classes are held on April 10, 17, 24, & May 1 from 5:30 PM to 8:00 PM at the Stanwood PUD, across the street from the QFC grocery store. Field trip Dates: Saturday, April 20 and 27 on Camano Island.
