Blue Thumb is having a training for new volunteers from 8:30am to 4:30pm on Saturday, November 3rd at the Westside Branch YMCA at 5400 S Olympia Ave in Tulsa.
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 a visit to a local creek to discuss the creek's ecology and biology, including getting into the water and looking 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 the Monitoring Training, scheduled for the next day in the same location.
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 3rd.
