Join 7th grade students at Bayshore Preserve as they explore both Johns Creek and estuary ecosystems.
This training will cover the interesting history of Bayshore Preserve, our four activity stations, and your role as a volunteer. The four stations are freshwater macroinvertebrates (stream bugs), stream flow and stream habitat, tidal life, and salinity. Bayshore FieldSTEM® is a partnership with Puget Sound Estuarium and the Shelton School District. Tidal life and salinity require about 0.5 miles of walking round trip, stream flow requires about 0.25 miles of walking, and macroinvertebrates requires about 0.1 miles of walking.
This training must be completed prior to volunteering. If you cannot make this training but want to participate please fill out the form and be sure to add that information in the comments section. After attending the training, volunteers can sign up to lead and/or assist in lessons for a half day (about 4 hours) or a full day (about 8 hours). Learn more about the program here.
Volunteers are required to pass a background check and fill out a volunteer waiver. These will be emailed after you register for the training.
