Project WET Workshops in the Northwest

Habitat Steward Training – The goal of the Habitat Stewards training program is to empower members of the community to help restore and maintain habitat for wildlife in their area as they volunteer for NWF and other local non-profits involved in habitat conservation. During the trainings, we bring in experts from the local community to speak for 45-60 minutes about various concepts relevant to habitat restoration and environmental stewardship. We want to give community members an opportunity to learn how to be good stewards of the land. If this is of interest to you, join us on September 6, 8, 13, 15, and 20. Sign-ups will begin on August 1st. Check out our Garden for Wildlife Missoula Instagram for more updates @gardenforwildlifemissoula or our Facebook at Missoula Community Wildlife Habitat.

Guided Missoula Urban Water Quality Experience Tour –Looking to explore Missoula’s certified wildlife habitats and the best management practices they display to help improve our watershed?  Join our AmeriCorps member, Kassie Robakiewicz, as she leads a guided tour to learn about the importance of gardening for wildlife, what can be done to help reduce the number of pollutants entering our river, and how you can improve your wildlife habitats. A certified wildlife habitat is a step toward replenishing resources for wildlife—both locally and along migratory corridors and we want to show you some great examples that Missoula holds on August 4, 2022 at 6 PM or August 6, 2022 at 10 AM. The tour will be a 2.45-mile loop displaying 5 separate certified wildlife habitats in Missoula including Western Cider, the Missoula Urban Development Project, Soil Cycle, Montana Natural History Center, and the Ogren Park Allegiance Field. RSVP here for August 4thhttps://wildlifehabitatguidedtour.brownpapertickets.com/ and here for August 6thhttps://wildlifehabitatguidedtour2.brownpapertickets.com/

Our AmeriCorps member will be giving a short presentation about gardening for wildlife while explaining how she created a rain garden at MUD.
