Are you interested in creating habitat for wildlife? Do you want to do your part to keep Washington wild?

Now is your chance to become a Habitat Steward™!

The National Wildlife Federation is offering a specialized, multi-week virtual training to teach you how to create and restore wildlife habitat in backyards, schoolyards, and other places in your community.

The training will be held twice a week over two weeks in January, 2023.

In addition, there will be in-person field experience opportunities offered pertaining to local habitats.

Benefits include: a comprehensive, digital training manual with local resources, instruction from local professionals, engaging field opportunities, certification as a habitat steward volunteer, and continued support from NWF staff. A variety of topics will be presented on habitat restoration, PNW ecology and wildlife, natural yard care, invasive plants, native plants, & much more!

Classes will be held via Zoom on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6-9 p.m., on Jan. 24, Jan. 26, Jan. 31 and Feb. 2, 2023.

Multiple field opportunities in January and February will be encouraged to expand learning in the Western Washington area.

The cost of the training is $20. Note: scholarships are available! No one will be turned down due to lack of funds. Once registered the Zoom link will be emailed to you.
