Conservation Stewards Program
Michigan Conservation Stewards Program Now Enrolling Students
for Programs Being Offered in Three Areas of the State this Fall
Looking for an opportunity to learn about Michigan’s ecosystems from experts and volunteers involved in conservation efforts in your community? Interested in gaining the knowledge and skills needed to lead and assist in local initiatives? Consider enrolling in the Michigan Conservation Stewards Program (CSP).
CSP is designed for those interested in learning science-based ecosystem (aquatic and terrestrial) management principles and sharing this knowledge with others to help restore and sustain healthy natural areas throughout Michigan. MSU Extension works with local conservation partners to design and deliver a series of evening and Saturday lectures and field sessions, combined with online instruction.
Professional level instruction is provided by MSU Extension, Michigan Natural Features Inventory, Michigan Department of Natural Resources, and a variety of local conservation partners. Sessions are offered in a variety of locations which highlight local natural areas on-the-ground conservation.
This fall, Michigan State University (MSU) Extension local conservation partners are offering three programs:
Washtenaw County- September 4 – November 13, 2019 (evening classes held on Wednesdays)
Capital Area- September 10 – November 5, 2019 (evening classes held on Tuesdays)
Northern Michigan- September 10 – October 22, 2019 (evening classes held on Tuesdays)
Registration fee is $250. Scholarships are available. Deadline to register is August 20, 2019.
