The Chesapeake Bay Foundation is accepting applications for its Richmond-area adult education course, VoiCeS (Volunteers as Chesapeake Stewards), which runs June 6th-August 1st

The course, an eight-week series of evening classes focusing on water quality and stewardship, features in-depth sessions taught by Bay experts from CBF and other regional institutions and organizations. Classes will meet Thursday evenings from 6 p.m. to 8:30 at Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden, 1800 Lakeside Avenue in Henrico County. 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 Chesapeake Bay Clean Water Blueprint aimed at restoring streams, rivers, and the 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.”
$30 fee per individual ($50per couple) covers the costs of materials and field trips. Applications are due by May 31. To apply or get more information, contact Aimee Bushman at 804-80-1392 or e-mail abushman@cbf.org.
