Volunteer Training: Reforestation Survey
The February training will focus on the Center’s Reforestation Survey which seeks to monitor the successes and challenges of reforestation projects completed throughout the watershed. In addition to creating habitat for wildlife, reforestation is integral for improving water quality as trees help to remove nutrient pollution from surface and groundwater.
This year, all training sessions will be held in-person and virtually through Zoom. Registration information and the required volunteer waivers are available online at https://www.inlandbays.org/get-involved/volunteer/.
