BROWARD COUNTY, FL – NatureScape Broward will be hosting a Habitat Steward Training, January 13-17, 2020, for 20 County residents interested in improving the environment.
The training includes local field trips, hands-on activities, and presentations from expert speakers on native plant communities, the natural history of south Florida and the Everglades, invasive exotic plant and animal species, designing gardens for wildlife, marine wildlife, migratory species, and pollinators. Presentations also address some potential implications of climate change on natural resources and adaptation strategies for south Florida.
Habitat Steward Volunteers are individuals with a keen interest in the environment, and a willingness to volunteer their time and expertise to help others create or restore wildlife habitat. Habitat Stewards commit to providing 30 hours of service within a year of completing their training. Habitat Stewards play an important role in NatureScape Broward’s efforts to create environmentally sustainable landscapes and habitat in Broward County. Many of the Stewards volunteer in their municipalities, assisting efforts to get their cities certified as Community Wildlife Habitats.
In addition to this training, NatureScape Broward offers various workshops throughout the year.
