NOW IS YOUR CHANCE TO BECOME A HABITAT STEWARD!

National Wildlife Federation and Tahoma Audubon Society are offering a specialized 24-hour training to teach you how to help others create and restore wildlife habitat in backyards, schoolyards, and other private and public areas. This program is engaging, fun and highly informative and you get to meet and interact with local conservation professionals and other similarly interested folks!

Benefits include: an NWF volunteer t-shirt, 24 hours of hands-on training, engaging field trips, a comprehensive training manual with local resources, instruction from local professionals, and continued support from NWF and Tahoma Audubon Society staff.

Expert speakers will speak about a variety of topics including, but not limited to: rain gardens, gardening for wildlife, native plants, noxious weeds, habitat restoration, bird identification and conservation, pollinators, current science in the Puget Sound, site mapping and much more!

WHEN: Every Monday in May from 6:00-9:00pm. Field trip sessions will be held on two Saturdays (May 6th and 13th), plan on a full day!

WHERE: Evening classes will be at the Adriana Hess Audubon Center.

COST: $30 to cover classroom materials; scholarships are available! No one will be turned down to lack of funds.
