The Chesapeake Bay Foundation would like to offer you two opportunites--one is a paid internship and the other is a series of classes called VoiCeS which helps you become an effective defender of the Chesapeake Bay.
Spring Watershed Restoration Internship
Find details at http://www.cbf.org/Page.aspx?pid=542. Note that this is different from the part-time and full-time field crew we will be hiring later this month for Clagett Farm.
VoiCeS Course (Volunteers as Chesapeake Stewards)
They are offered every year, but not always as nearby as Annapolis, so take this opportunity while it's here. Classes are filling up quickly.
Thursdays, Feb. 18 – April 17, 2009
6:30 - 9:30 pm
Saturdays, Feb. 20 – April 17, 2009
9:30 am – 12:30 pm
VoiCeS (Volunteers as Chesapeake Stewards), CBF's adult education volunteer training program, is starting soon. Come learn about the complex history, issues, and relationships that make the Bay the national treasure it is! VoiCeS, which began in 2004, creates a deeper understanding of the Bay and the efforts to restore it. This professionally-taught, two-part program, meets each week (for eight weeks) and includes field trips and participant-led community projects. You'll learn about the Bay’s biology, the issues we face, and how you and your community can help its restoration.
The program is divided into two parts: An eight-week course of study, with one 3-hour class each week, and a service requirement of 40 hours over the next year on a Bay-related project or projects. At least two Saturday Bay field trips are included in the program. Successful graduates receive CBF’s designation as Chesapeake Stewards.
There is a $25 materials fee but no registration fee. Space is limited. For more information on the course and to download the application form, visit www.cbf.org/voices.
