We are so excited to announce the launch of a new virtual volunteer opportunity created in partnership with Hands on Bay Area and Sutro Stewards. Nature in Your Neighborhood is an interactive, virtual program where we challenge you to go out into your backyards or neighborhoods to learn more about the plants that grow around you. Volunteers will attend an orientation with Sutro Stewards staff to learn how to identify Bay Area native and invasive plants and their impact on our local environment. We will supply you with all the resources you need to learn about the plants around you. Volunteers will then be tasked to venture into their backyards and neighborhoods to flex their new identification skills. You can create a short video about your plants, take photos and do a write up for our blog or create any other creative content for Sutro Stewards’ use on social media platforms. Develop your own green thumbs and learn about the environment in your backyards and neighborhoods! Volunteers will first meet us via Zoom (link above) for an orientation on Saturday, June 13th at 10:00am and then reconvene via Zoom (linl above) the following Tuesday, June 16th at 5:00pm to share your findings with the group! Please have all content ready for submission by June 16th.
