Become a Stream Steward!
Clark County citizens care about protecting our vibrant ecosystems. Still, environmental conservation can seem like a daunting task, but anyone with a passion for the great outdoors and a commitment of 45 hours of volunteer time can make a difference by becoming a Stream Steward. Stream Stewards participate in free classes and workshops about native plants, stream restoration and wildlife, and in return use their knowledge to support the utility’s environmental efforts.
Stewards attend classes 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. on six Saturdays and 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on five Tuesdays; all held September 21 through November 2. We’re also offering an optional leader training on Saturday, October 12. After completing training, Stream Stewards from a variety of backgrounds support the StreamTeam by leading school presentations on salmon conservation, organizing tree planting groups, combating invasive knotweed and more.
Stream Stewards commit to at least 45 hours of service in exchange for free educational opportunities. Classes are open to local people of many skills and abilities. Conserving Clark County’s wildlife and local watersheds begins with learning about the remarkable world here in our own communities.
Space is limited, so submit your application today at www.StreamStewards.net. Or contact Ashley at StreamTeam@clarkpud.com or 360-992-8585 with any questions.
