Learn to be a Watershed and Community Steward!

Click to registerVoiCeSVolunteers as Chesapeake Stewards—is a free, eight-week course of evening classes for adult volunteers who want to learn more about the Chesapeake Bay and regional environmental issues and go the extra mile to help save the Bay. The program provides information on subjects affecting the health of our community's natural environment and how you can take action. In-depth sessions are taught by Bay experts from CBF and other regional institutions and organizations.

The 2016 session runs Tuesday evenings from 6:30-9:00 p.m. September 13 through November 8, 2016 (there will be no class October 11). The course will be held in downtown Richmond, final location yet to be determined.

Course topics will include

  • Exploring the history and culture of the James River
  • Critters from the Bay to Richmond
  • Bees, trees, and clean water: DIY water quality protections
  • Becoming a citizen advocate
  • and much more!

A discussion of Virginia's Bay Cleanup Blueprint aimed at restoring streams, rivers, and the Chesapeake Bay. The program culminates in a service requirement of 40 hours on an environment-related project(s) of your choosing. Successful graduates receive CBF's designation as a "Chesapeake Steward."

Space is limited. Applications are due September 10. Register below or contact Blair Blanchette at 804-780-1392 or by e-mail at bblanchette@cbf.org for more information.
