Sunday, January 4, 2015 from 7:00 PM to 10:00 PM (CST)
These are dates that WPD scientists are available to lead seed island volunteer projects. Volunteer organizations can book the scientists during this timeframe or if the organization attended seed island training on December 4, 2013 then can lead the project themselves. Each project should take about 2 hours with 15 volunteers who are older teens or adults.
