Nature in Your Neighborhood: Virtual Volunteering
June 12 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Nature in Your Neighborhood is an interactive, virtual program where Sutro Stewards challenges you to go out into your backyards or neighborhoods to learn more about the plants that grow around you. There is an emphasis on California native plants, but all are welcome.
Volunteers will attend an orientation with Sutro Stewards staff to learn how to identify Bay Area native and invasive plants and their impact on our local environment. Volunteers will then be tasked to venture into their backyards and neighborhoods to flex their new identification skills. You can create a short video about your plants, take photos and do a write up for our blog or create any other creative content for Sutro Stewards’ use on social media platforms. Volunteers will be given three – four days to complete their short videos and return for a final debrief and reflection!
The final group share out will be Tuesday (05/15) at 5:00pm where you get to share your findings with your community. Please have all content ready for submission by 4:00pm on Tuesday.
