UW-Madison Arboretum Earth Partnership Team Leader Training
Interested in getting your hands dirty while learning about native landscapes? Enjoy working outdoors and meeting new people? If you are, then become a UW Arboretum Team Leader! Team Leaders learn about the art and science of ecological restoration, and about the native ecosystems of Wisconsin. They apply this knowledge by leading other volunteers at the ecological restoration work parties at the UW Arboretum.
Responsibilities include teaching and supervising volunteers, working outdoors in a variety of seasons and weather, clearing brush, controlling invasive plants species with weeding and/or herbicide application, seeding in restoration sites, and collecting research data. This is a great professional development opportunity, and a way to practice the land ethic by giving back to your community. Training runs from June 2 to October 1, 2011; cost for materials and training is $60.
