This intensive multi-week program is held on six consecutive Thursday evenings from 6-8:30 p.m., from October 11 through November 15, 2018.
CBF created the Volunteers as Chesapeake Stewards (VoiCeS) program in 2004 as a way to reach out to local volunteers and their communities and create a deeper understanding of the Bay and the efforts to restore it. VoiCeS is CBF's most in-depth adult education program available to its members and the public.
Special presenters include Senator Emmett W. Hanger, Jr., Delegate Tony Wilt, and Harrisonburg Vice-Mayor Richard Baugh, among others. See the full agenda
Participants learn from engaging and thought-provoking speakers about the Bay's biology, how farmers are reducing runoff, about the critters that call the Shenandoah streams home and how to protect them. Attendees will leave knowing how their everyday actions can help restore the Bay and local waterways.
Participants are expected to attend at least five of the six classroom sessions, as well as a field trip. The program culminates in a service requirement of 40 hours on a clean-water-related project of your choosing. Successful graduates receive CBF's designation as "Chesapeake Stewards."
Materials fee: $25/individual, $40/couple.
Registration deadline: October 8, 2018
