2018 Conservation Stewardship Training Course

Audubon Everglades is offering a learning opportunity to explore the natural habitats in Palm Beach County. Sixteen expert instructors will engage participants in understanding how five fragile Florida ecosystems sustain plants, birds and wildlife, cope with invasive flora and fauna, manage species of concern and adapt to growth and climate change, along with the function and importance of the Greater Everglades. During this seven-week basic environmental education, field exploration at five unique, local habitats will complement classroom study, an advocacy component and special presentations during a catered lunch. Throughout, stewards will be guided in developing a personal plan of action that will empower them to aid and advocate for their environment.

To bring you this experience, Audubon Everglades is partnering with the PBC UF/IFAS Extension, with support from Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge, Pine Jog Environmental Education Center, Loggerhead Marinelife Center, and PBC Environmental Resources Management.

This course runs on consecutive Mondays, from February 5 to March 19, 2018, from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm.
