Learning about stormwater

OlympianApril 24, 2014 

Thurston County's regional Stream Team Program and WSU Extension are recruiting volunteers to train as “Stormwater Stewards.”
 Applications will be accepted through the last week in April, and training scholarships are available.
Trained volunteers work with local residents to help reduce pollution in our local waterways and Puget Sound from stormwater runoff. Volunteers receive training in many aspects of on-site stormwater management including rain gardens, water-wise plants, pervious
pavements, vegetated roofs, and more.
Classes and hands-on field trainings will be held in the evenings and on weekends to accommodate work schedules. Landscaping professionals are also encouraged to take part in the certification program. The training dates are Thursday evenings in May and June,  beginning May 8, with field days on June 21, 28 and July 12.
