Weed Warrior Training
Tuesday, June 9, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Be a PVAS “Weed Warrior”!
If you want to volunteer at our nature preserves, but can’t make it to the scheduled volunteer workdays, this training is for you!
Our Land & Conservation Manager – KC Walters – will lead the first PVAS Weed Warrior Certification training. Certified Weed Warriors will be given the knowledge and the tools needed to tackle invasive species at the preserves on their own schedules. Plus, they will be connected with other Weed Warriors to work together.
The first portion of Weed Warrior training will be held on Tuesday, June 9 from 6-8 p.m. via Zoom. After the virtual portion of the training, participants will sign-up for a one-hour outdoor training in small groups at either Cool Spring or Yankauer Preserve, dates TBD based on participant availability.
After successful completion of both portions of the training, participants will become certified PVAS Weed Warriors! This certification comes with distinction, an awesome t-shirt to wear while performing duties, and exclusive access to the best tools of the trade. Additional trainings will be held over the summer based on interest. Please be sure to pre-register for this training using the form found below.
If you can not attend the June 9 virtual training, it will be offered again later this summer.
If you have any questions, contact KC at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the Cool Spring office at 681-252-1387.
