Help Wildlife & Become a Habitat Steward!
NOW IS YOUR CHANCE TO BECOME A HABITAT STEWARD!
National Wildlife Federation and Veteran Conservation Corps 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 VCC staff.
Expert speakers from Center for Natural Lands Management, Washington Native Plant Society, WSU Thurston County Extension, Stream Team, and other local organizations 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!
Classes will be held every Tuesday in April from 6:00-9:00pm at the Lacey Veterans Services Hub (4232 6th Ave. SE, Ste. 202, Lacey, WA). Field trip sessions will be held on two Saturdays (April 8th & 29th), plan on a full day!
*Scholarships are available! No one will be turned down due to lack of funds. Email WAhabitatcoordinator@nwf.org for more information.
**A 30-hour volunteer commitment within a year after the training is required. We will provide coffee, tea, and snacks at each training session and you are welcome to bring a brown bag dinner.
