Neighborhood Sustainability Steward Training

Make a difference in your community – join the Neighborhood Sustainability Steward Volunteers. A program to engage the local community in climate change actions on a household level. Attend an eight week course to increase your knowledge of energy savings and sustainable living practices in your own home. Course topics include climate change science, household energy/emissions reductions, food system/choices, waste reduction, water savings, landscapes, and transportation options. Class sessions include guest speakers, small group activities, materials, and take home activities. Stewards then commit to giveback 30 hours of volunteer payback in projects and education outreach in the community, and to report their hours. Course meets on Monday evenings starting October 7th, 6:30 – 8:50 pm.  Registration required, deadline October 1st. Cost is $50 or bring a friend, share materials, and split the cost. Some scholarships also available. Contact Jody.einerson@oregonstate.edu or 541-766-6311 for more information.  Register online at https://secure.oregonstate.edu/osuext/register/624
