Learn to be a Streamkeeper!
Greenways Land Trust will be offering the Streamkeeper training course from Feb. 27 – Mar. 1 at North Island College in Campbell River. Streamkeepers is a fun and educational 2½ day introduction to stream stewardship which will be taught by Michele Jones, a qualified environmental professional who has been working in streams for over 20 years and has taught hundreds of volunteer Streamkeepers since 1994.
This weekend course offers individuals an opportunity for hands-on learning and practice of stream stewardship activities such as stream surveying, conducting water quality testing, and stream invertebrate identification. No experience is necessary, just a willingness to get your hands wet! Participants that successfully complete the course will be awarded a Streamkeepers Certificate and will be connected with existing Streamkeeper groups in the Campbell River area.
The course costs $20 for registrations before Feb. 20 and $30 after that.
