Event description

Description

Anyone can become an Environmental Steward!

This program is designed to introduce non-scientists to the science behind important environmental issues affecting NJ. Stewards then give back to their own communities by helping to solve local environmental problems. If you have a passion for the environment, a desire to learn and a willingness to volunteer, then this program is for you!

Classes are taught by experts from Rutgers University and non-profit and government organizations. Fieldtrips to environmentally significant sites around the state are included as part of the program.

Learn about:

  • Climate Change
  • Soil Health
  • Energy Conservation
  • Water Resource Protection
  • Invasive Species
  • Wildlife Management
  • Habitat Conservation
  • Protecting Pollinators
  • Environmental Policy

To become a certified Rutgers Environmental Steward, graduates of the class portion of the program complete a unique 60-hour volunteer internship of their choosing.

The program runs every Thursday from January 24th to June 13th and one ticket covers all of the meeting dates

Classes are held at Duke Farms, 1112 Duke Parkway West, Hillsborough, NJ, Thursday evenings from 6:30 – 9:30 PM, Late January – early June.
