We are offering a speaker series of live webinars on various sustainability, waste reduction and zero-waste topics. These webinars are free.

We have just completed our series for 2020. Recordings for each of this year’s events are available on our Sustainability Speaker Series page. Soon we will be publishing our schedule for 2021!

What We DoA volunteer holds a sign about proper waste diversion, and places a bottle into the correct waste bin.

Snohomish County WSU Extension’s Sustainable Community Steward (SCS) Outreach Program is made up of both SCS and Waste Warrior volunteers. Each of these volunteers craft their own volunteer experience, selecting the activities that match their interests with a schedule that fits into their lives.

Types of volunteer support can include: writing newsletter articles, identifying new project options, researching continuing education opportunities, event coordination, community outreach and education, public speaking, office administration support, and more!
