SCHEDULE CHANGE: The start date for the Lynchburg VoiCeS program has been rescheduled for March 25. The program will now run for six weeks, ending on the original date of April 29th. The fees have been reduced to $20/person and $35/couple.
This six-week series of evening classes focuses on water quality and watershed stewardship. The series features in-depth sessions taught by Bay experts from CBF and other regional institutions and organizations. Course topics will include: local natural history and culture, restoration efforts, wetlands, landscaping with Bay-friendly native plants, agriculture and the watershed, Bay legislation, citizen action and advocacy.
Classes will meet Tuesday evenings from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at the Madison Heights Library, 200 James Shopping Center in Madison Heights. Two Bay-related field trips are included in the course, as is discussion of Virginia's Chesapeake Clean Water Blueprint, the state's plan to restore the Chesapeake Bay and local streams and rivers.
The program culminates in a service requirement of 40 hours on a Bay-related project(s) of your choosing. Successful graduates receive CBF's designation as "Chesapeake Stewards."
Space is limited; registration deadline is March 24, 2014.
