REMINDER: Environmental Steward Program sign-up

Hello Master Gardeners,

There is STILL TIME to sign-up for the Environmental Steward Program starting next week.

A Rutgers Environmental Steward is a volunteer that is trained in the important environmental issues affecting New Jersey and works to help solve local environmental problems.

If you have a passion to learn and a willingness to volunteer then this program is for you!

Stewards attend weekly classes and are taught by leading researchers from Rutgers, government, and the non-profit sector. Fieldtrips to environmentally significant sites are included. Stewards complete a 60 hour internship of their choosing to become certified. Topics include climate change, solid waste and recycling, soil health, alternative energy, water quality, habitat conservation, pollinator protection, environmental policy and more!

Anyone can become an Environmental Steward! Weekly classes start Thursday January 30, 2020 and run till early June from 4pm-7pm at Rutgers Cooperative Extension of Union County offices, 300 North Avenue East, Westfield. The program fee is $260. For more information contact Michele Bakacs at bakacs@njaes.rutgers.edu or (732)398-5274.
