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 6 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.
