2019 Volunteer Nature Stewardship Class

Saturdays, 1/19/19 – 2/23/19 from 1:30 to 3:30pm

The Florida Medical Entomology Laboratory (FMEL) will offer its twenty-first Volunteer Nature Stewardship Class for the Oslo Riverfront Conservation Area (ORCA) beginning on 1/19/2019.  This 6-week, free class is taught by researchers and staff from the FMEL and other educational institutions.  It provides a foundation for understanding — and enjoying — the common habitats of Indian River County through classroom talks and field activities.

Class participants are asked to “volunteer back” and share what they have learned at the ORCA, another nature preserve, a nature center, or another venue.  You craft how and where you “volunteer back”.

Here is the 2019 tentative class schedule:  2019 FMEL Volunteer Class Draft Schedule.

This class is limited to 20 people.  Email  Janice Broda at jbroda@ufl.edu for more information or to express your interest in the 2019 class.
