Do you want to learn about and explore forests and
streams? On the Kitsap Peninsula, beautiful forests and small streams
abound, making it the ideal place to learn about native plants, forests,
wetlands, aquatic insects, and more. We also discuss our interaction with
these resources and their protection, conservation, and restoration. We’ll
spend plenty of time exploring outdoors.
During the training and field sessions you’ll have the opportunity to
connect with experts and other local people who share your interests. We
also provide opportunities for continuing education and involvement in
volunteer activities around the county, including tree planting, streamside
restoration, stream sampling, and teaching others at events like Salmon in
the Classroom. This 5 week non-credit training is open to the public and
taught by local and regional experts.
Those who complete the training and volunteer 25 hours will earn a WSU
Stream Stewards certificate of completion, hat, and name badge.
