Eye on Nature
March 31 @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pm PDT
Train to become an Eye on Nature volunteer.
Eye on Nature is an environmental education program that is a partnership between Billy Frank Jr. Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge, Nisqually River Education Project, Chehalis Basin Education Consortium and Nisqually Reach Nature Center.
Eye on Nature field trips are the culminating component of a year-long environmental education program in both the Nisqually and Chehalis watersheds, designed to educate on watershed-specific subjects and to foster a sense of stewardship.
Eye On Nature field trips are citizen science based field investigations and all classes receive pre-trip classroom presentations to prepare for their trip, which goes over the history of the refuge, and the citizen science project they’ll be engaging in during the field trip.
The training is March 31 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Attendance is required for all new volunteers and encouraged for returning volunteers. Learn all about the Eye On Nature program and how it is designed to provide positive, fun, meaningful, and memorable experiences for students! After completing this training you will become familiar with Eye On Nature activities and have a chance to practice doing them yourself!
An optional plant and bird ID training will be held April 15 from 11:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. This optional training is a chance to head out on the trails with Refuge Educators and Guest Trail Leaders to spend an afternoon botanizing and birding with nothing else on the agenda.
