Waste Warriors Spring Training

Do you ever find yourself standing at the recycling bin wondering what can and can’t be recycled, and WHY? Curious about climate change and how your individual actions can make a difference? Wondering how you can get more engaged in your local community? Get answers to these questions and more by becoming a WSU Sustainable Community Steward!

The Spring 2024 training runs on Mondays starting April 22nd through May 20th.


By enrolling, you receive university-level training grounded in climate change science relevant both within Snohomish County and globally. The training is designed to help you become an informed community educator, preparing you for your volunteer commitment of 20 hours. A combination of engaging classroom presentations and discussions paired with behind-the-scenes field trips make this an excellent educational and community engagement opportunity.
