Watershed Stewards Volunteer Training
Make a difference in the environment by becoming a Watershed Steward volunteer!
How clean is your local stream?
Learn what you can do to maintain healthy watersheds for your community, fish and wildlife and future generations. Take our free volunteer training series, learn for yourself and then teach others to protect our precious resources.
Offered by WSU Clark County Extension in partnership with Clark County Environmental Services, Watershed Steward 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.
