Alabama Watershed Stewards is now Online!
Join us for the first week-long virtual course November 9-13
What it is:
Alabama Watershed Stewards Online is a one-week self-paced virtual course.
Designed for the general public, this course will give you an overview of how watersheds work, how different fields can work together to improve watershed function and water quality, and ways you can personally get involved in making a difference.
You’ll receive daily prompts to log in and complete certain sections (about an hour a day for five days), but you set your own schedule.
The class is followed by an interactive Zoom discussion with your peers across the state where you can share your ideas and questions.
This is the first session open to the public and it’s free!
