VoiCeS Frederick (Volunteers as Chesapeake Stewards)
October 9, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - November 13, 2017 @ 8:30 pm
VoiCeS stands for Volunteers as Chesapeake Stewards. CBF created the 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.
In this professionally taught course, participants learn about the Chesapeake Bay watershed, its benefits and its issues, and what volunteers can do to help restore it. The course meets weekly on Mondays for six weeks, beginning on October 9th. It also includes one Saturday field trip and preparation for any advocacy or volunteer projects to be undertaken by participants after the course.
There is a materials fee of $35 per person.
Participants are expected to attend at least five of the six classroom sessions, as well as the field trip. This course is open to all Marylanders.
Last year’s course sold out, so get on board now for a deep-dive exploration of Chesapeake Bay!
