About this event

Thursdays, March 9th - April 6th, 9:00 - 12:30.

The Stream Stewards Program provides Jefferson and Clallam County residents the opportunity to turn environmental knowledge into action. Through this multi-day training we are offering in-class lectures and field trips across the North Olympic Peninsula focusing on the rivers and streams that flow into the Strait of Juan de Fuca, and the environments that impact them. You will also receive supplemented education through pre-recorded online presentations by regional experts that can be watched on your own schedule.

Topics include:

Stream and watershed ecology

Tribal treaty rights and natural resource management

Native plants and forest ecology


Protecting and conserving watersheds

Role of citizen science in restoration

Participants in this course receive comprehensive, science-based training and become stewards, citizen scientists, and educators in the local community. Instructors come from a wide range of local and regional agencies and organizations.

The fun continues after the class: Following the class, WSU Stream Stewards commit to volunteering 20 hours for local water-related programs with WSU Extension, or another of our partner organizations: North Olympic Salmon Coalition (NOSC), Jefferson or Clallam Conservation Districts, the Dungeness River Audubon Center, Streamkeepers, Northwest Watershed Institute, Washington State Department of Fish & Wildlife, Jefferson or Clallam County Noxious Weed Control,  Jefferson or North Olympic Land Trust and others.

Volunteer projects: Stream Stewards continues the WSU Beach Naturalist and Master Gardener tradition of volunteering in the community. You could help with salmon spawning surveys; take water quality samples; help install rain gardens; hobnob with tourists and friends at the annual festivals and more!

Special note: Because this program is funded by a grant, we are able to offer it for only $25 – making this a great time to sign up!
