Watershed ecology topic of 12-week series in Seattle

Washington residents concerned about the health of Puget Sound can enroll in a 12-week Citizen Action Training School beginning March 11 in Seattle.

The program, one of a series sponsored by the Puget Sound Partnership, concentrates on watershed ecology, with additional emphasis on legal and regulatory processes that affect resource management.

According to organizers, the training is intended to “create a pool of community leaders who are active stewards and advocates for their watersheds and the greater Puget Sound.”

Participants will receive 50 hours of training over three months during weekday evening classes and a few Saturday field sessions. After the training, participants are expected to volunteer at least 50 hours to plan and complete a service project in their community.

Applications can be found online at bit.ly/1k7R33r.

Friday is the deadline for applications.
