Blue Thumb is having a training for new volunteers from 8:30am to 4:30pm on Saturday, October 13th at the Biosystems and Ag Engineering Lab at 323 N Cleveland in Stillwater.
The training will include an introduction to the Blue Thumb program and an overview of various ways you can participate as a Blue Thumb volunteer, with a focus on volunteer education opportunities. You will also get to learn about water quality, watersheds, nonpoint source pollution and other topics through a series of educational activities which you can then use to educate members of your own community.
Project WET (Water Education for Teachers) will be included and all participants will recieve at WET activity guide at the end of the day. The day will also include visiting a local creek to discuss the creek's ecology and biology, including getting in the water to look for bugs and fish. For those interested in monitoring a local creek or stream, you will need to attend this training and also register for an upcoming Monitoring Training .
If you are not interested in monitoring but want to be a volunteer educator or learn about other ways to volunteer or just learn about the Blue Thumb program in general, you will only need to attend this one-day training on the 13th.
