This is a unique opportunity to learn about the Penobscot Bay region and ways to conserve its resources.
The course is Free of charge. Participants are expected to volunteer 30 hours to local conservation efforts of their choice during the coming year.
Penobscot Bay Stewards is a program of Belfast Bay Watershed Coalition in partnership with Searsport Shores Ocean Campground.
The program will run all day on Tuesdays and Thursdays from April 25 through May 25.
It will include classroom presentations, short hikes in nature preserves and state parks, and field trips to Rockland, Hurricane Island, Indian Island, Blue Hill / Stonington, Searsport, and the Belfast area.
Some days will require early morning departures and boat trips. Participants should be prepared to car pool and bring a bag lunch.
