Are you interested in creating habitat for wildlife? Do you want to do your part to keep Washington wild? Now is your chance to become a Habitat Steward™! The National Wildlife Federation is offering a specialized, multi-week virtual training to teach you how to create and restore wildlife habitat in backyards, schoolyards, and other places in your community. The training will be held twice a week over two weeks in January 2023. In addition, there will be in-person field experience opportunities offered pertaining to local habitats.
Benefits include: a comprehensive, digital training manual with local resources, instruction from local professionals, engaging field opportunities, certification as a habitat steward volunteer, and continued support from NWF staff. A variety of topics will be presented on habitat restoration, PNW ecology and wildlife, natural yard care, invasive plants, native plants, & much more!
Classes will be held via Zoom on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6-9pm. The dates are: 1/24, 1/26, 1/31 and February 2nd. Multiple field opportunities in January and February will be encouraged to expand learning in the Western Washington area.
The cost of the training is $20. Note: scholarships are available! No one will be turned down due to lack of funds. Once registered the Zoom link will be emailed to you. Contact Crystal Lloyd at WAEducation@nwf.org.
