About the Event

The Natural Resources Steward program offers a comprehensive education & volunteer support network for people who want to learn, explore & share the nature of NH. It starts with a hands-on course that brings people together to explore NH's ecosystems - how trees, plants, soil, fungi, water, wildlife, and even humans are interconnected, and how we can reduce our impact and restore and protect the nature we are a part of.

Stewards are expected to provide 40 hours of volunteer service in the first year. Activities range from planting natives or teaching youth and adults about wildlife to restoring forest systems, creating habitat for the endangered New England Cottontail, growing food and creating community gardens. Stewards also work on conservation projects, permanently protecting acres of vital wetlands, forests and farmlands. The course cost $295, and scholarships are available.

Applications are due August 30, with training starting the following Friday and continuing for 12 weeks until November 22.
