Bay stewardship course offered to Richmond-area residents

August 2, 2012 12:52pm
The Chesapeake Bay Foundation is accepting applications for its Richmond-area adult education course, VoiCeS (Volunteers as Chesapeake Stewards), which runs September 13-November 8, 2012.
The course, an eight-week series of evening classes focusing on water quality and stewardship, features in-depth sessions taught by Bay experts from the CBF and other regional institutions and organizations. Classes will meet Thursday evenings from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.at Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden. Course topics will include:
§Chesapeake Bay and James River history and ecology
§Wastewater and stormwater issues
§Site design and Bay-friendly landscaping
§Citizen action and advocacy
§Fisheries updates
§Agriculture and the watershed.
Two Bay-related field trips are included in the course, as is discussion of Virginia’s Bay cleanup blueprint aimed at restoring streams, rivers, and the Chesapeake Bay. Following the class work, participants will be asked to perform a minimum 40 hours of Bay-related volunteer service. Successful graduates receive CBF’s designation as a “Chesapeake Steward.”
A $30 fee per individual ($50 per couple) covers the costs of materials and field trips. Applications are due by September 6th. Contact Lori Kersting at 804/780-1392 or e-mail lkersting@cbf.org .
