Training Details:
Part 2 of the Volunteer Supervisor Training for Great River Greening’s School Programs is open to 20 participants. During this training, we will walk step-by-step through each activity in small groups and cover: an introduction to the activity and various tools used, hands-on trials with all participants using the tools, and conversations on the various discussion topics in each activity. Completion of this training will allow Supervisors to lead educational activities at FLT events (water quality chemistries, macroinvertebrate sampling, GPS/geocaching, terrestrial invertebrate sampling, etc.). All participants MUST have previously completed Part 1 of this training.

Part 2 is held completely outdoors. Please come prepared for the weather (we will hold this event even in light rain). Light snacks and beverages will be available for participants.
