2023 Stream Stewards Training

February 9, 2023

The Stream Steward Program provides Kitsap residents with the opportunity to turn environmental knowledge into action. Through an annual, multi-day, hybrid training, participants learn about connections between our lands and waters and the life that depends on their health. The training includes classroom sessions, field trips, and hands-on activities, and connects participants with experts and opportunities to get involved in local efforts.

Upon completion, volunteers are required to commit to 20 hours of ecosystem-based volunteer service in the next year and report these hours to WSU Extension. Volunteer hours can be applied to a wide range of opportunities that work toward the larger goal of improving Kitsap ecosystem health. From getting involved in a citizen science project to engaging in public outreach, volunteers can connect with opportunities that fit their skills and interests.

Throughout the training, organizations will provide participants with information about local projects and offer exciting opportunities to plug in and make a difference in Kitsap County.

Sample topics for the 2023 training include:

  • Stream and forest ecology
