Creek Crew Leader Training Part 1: Webinar
January 20 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
CREEK CREW LEADER TRAINING IS BACK
After two years hiatus during COVID we are so excited to be back up and running with our in person events, and especially creek crew leaders who are our *volunteer superstars*
Our Creek Crew Leaders are a HUGE piece of our restoration work at Johnson Creek! We work with thousands of volunteers each year and with a small staff, we can’t function without the community support of volunteers like you to teach and lead in our restoration events!
Creek Crew leaders choose at least 3 volunteer days a year to help guide small groups of volunteers for our native plantings, invasive species and trash removal parties throughout the year. They are also a crucial element of our larger events such as our Watershed Wide Event (in March) and the Johnson Creek Clean-Up (in August).
JCWC’s Creek Crew expands our capacity for facilitating restoration events throughout the year – we couldn’t do it without you!
