Watershed training available

“Water, water everywhere, and not a drop to drink.”

-Samuel Taylor Coleridge

Free watershed stewardship training is being made available this spring through the WSU Clark County Extension in partnership with the Clark County Clean Water Program. Starting Feb. 10 and running Tuesdays from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. through April 14, volunteers can learn how to maintain healthy watersheds.

To apply or for more information, contact jenifer.naas@clark.wa.gov 360-397-6060 x 7703 or apply online.

The training uses community experts and environmental professionals to teach the basics of ecology, hydrology, geology, stream restoration, and the importance of native plants and fish.

After training, volunteers work on a variety of projects with the Watershed Steward Program and local environmental partners in public outreach and education, stream restoration, water-quality monitoring, classroom presentations, or community workshops.

What have you done for your environment lately?
