Are you interested in creating areas for wildlife? Do you want to do your part to keep Kitsap County wild? Now is your chance to become a Habitat Steward™!
National Wildlife Federation and One Heart Wild Education Sanctuary are offering a specialized 24-hour training program to teach you how to help others create and restore wildlife habitat in backyards, schoolyards, and other community areas. The training will take place every Wednesday in April from 6:00-9:00pm at One Heart Wild Education Sanctuary. The workshop includes two Saturday field trips on April 15th and 22nd. Plan on full days.
This training is engaging, fun and highly informative and you get to meet and interact with local conservation professionals and other similarly interested folks! Expert speakers from the Kitsap Conservation District, WSU Kitsap County Extension, Kitsap Audubon Society, West Sound Wildlife Shelter, and Wild Birds Unlimited of Gig Harbor, WA, and other local organizations will present on topics including, but not limited to: rain gardens, gardening for wildlife, native plants, noxious weeds, habitat restoration, bird identification and conservation, pollinators, current science in the Puget Sound, site mapping and much more! West Sound Wildlife Shelter will even be bringing an Animal Ambassador!
Cost of the training is $30 to cover classroom materials. Note: scholarships are available! No one will be turned down due to lack of funds. We will provide coffee, tea, and snacks at each training session – you are welcome to bring a brown bag dinner.
