Join Nahant Marsh for our Master Conservationist Program. Come discover the world around you. Topics include urban water and energy conservation, sustainable agricultural practices, and wildlife diversity in Iowa. Participants will receive 32 hours of instruction from March to August 2014, with many of the classes held at outside locations. Each participant is asked to put their knowledge into practice by volunteering at least 32 hours of their time to a conservation or natural resource related service. Previous volunteer activities have included prairie planting, seed harvesting, water quality testing, and staffing conservation centers. Cost is $150.
Registrations are accepted by mail or in person at ISU Scott County Extension and Outreach, 875 Tanglefoot Lane, Bettendorf, IA 52722. There is a maximum class size of 25, so early registrations are encouraged. Participants must be at least 18 years of age. The deadline for registration is February 21, 2014.
For more information, call the Scott County Extension office (563-359-7577) or Nahant Marsh (563-323-5196).
