Interested in attending in depth trainings on conservation planning and implementing a restoration plan with your new knowledge? Become an Urban Watershed Mentor!
After going through a series of trainings, mentors will be able to implement restoration projects either on their own properties or on publicly owned land. Following the implementation of a restoration project the trained mentors will become part of a network of community volunteer leaders that can mentor new interested volunteers to facilitate the implementation of more restoration projects! As the network grows more and more conservation work will be possible through this program.
The trainings will be held once-a-month for six consecutive Saturdays from January through June, 2013, 9:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m. The exact schedule is as follows:
January 12, 2013, SW Community Center, 6820 SW 45th Avenue, Portland
