Watershed volunteer training

  WSU Cooperative Extension King County's Land/Water Stewardship Program is now recruiting for the 1998 Watershed Volunteer Training. Land/Water Stewards are trained volunteers who help others make educated choices about the use of their land and water resources. Selected individuals will receive 70+ hours of training about watersheds and their resources. In return for the training, volunteers agree to provide a minimum of 70 hours of outreach and education to residents of King County. For the first time, the program is targeting volunteers willing to work in specific areas. Other outreach may include self-directed projects, formal and informal presentations, and agency projects.
   The training will be held in the Seattle area from April 3 to May 29, 1998 (9 a.m. to 4 p.m.) classes are every Friday and three field trips will be held on Saturdays. To receive a Land/Water Stewardship Application Packet, phone 206-296-3900 and leave your name, address and phone number. Outside the Seattle calling area, dial toll-free, 1-800-325-6165 and ask for extension 6-3900. The application deadline is 4:00 p.m. on Thursday, March 12, 1998.
