Registration opens for Stream Stewards Program

Posted

The Washington State University Extension is once more offering the Stream Stewards Program for fall 2021. The program provides Jefferson and Clallam county residents with the opportunity to turn environmental knowledge into action.

This six-week course includes field trips and experiences across the North Olympic Peninsula, focusing on the rivers and streams that flow into the Strait of Juan de Fuca, and the environments that impact them. Field trips are Tuesdays from 9 a.m. to noon, beginning Sept. 28 and running through Nov. 2.

Tours and activities across the North Olympic Peninsula will inform students about regional natural resources as they experience hands-on sampling and plant identification, and connect with the organizations who are preserving and restoring the natural environment. 

Participants in this course receive comprehensive, science-based training and become stewards, citizen scientists, and educators in the local community.

Following the class, WSU Stream Stewards commit to volunteering 20 hours for local water-related programs with WSU Extension, or other partner organizations.

Stream Stewards continues the WSU Beach Naturalist and Master Gardener tradition of volunteering in the community. Help with salmon spawning surveys; take water quality samples; help install rain gardens; hobnob with tourists and friends at the annual festivals and more.

The cost of the course is $25. Questions? Email bridget.gregg@wsu.edu or monica.montgomery1@wsu.edu.
