A free public information session about the Penn State Master Watershed Steward Program in Bucks County is being held Friday, December 6th, from 6:30 to 7:30pm at the Bucks County Extension Office auditorium, 1282 Almshouse Road, Doylestown.
The Penn State Master Watershed Steward Program in Bucks County is training a new class of volunteers this coming spring.
The program provides 40 hours of water and natural resource training for citizens that have an interest in the environment, a willingness to learn more and a strong desire to make a difference in the community.
After training, volunteers engage in projects to help protect our streams, rivers and wildlife habitat.
Examples of projects include designing and installing demonstration rain gardens, native pollinator gardens or streamside plantings, stream monitoring and organizing educational workshops that address topics like backyard conservation or homeowner stormwater management.
The training program begins Thursday, April 2nd, 2020 and continues subsequent Thursdays from 5:45pm to 8:45pm through July.
Training is held at the Bucks County Extension office and local partnering environmental organizations.
The curriculum also features three hands-on Saturday field trips.
