During Stewardship and Monitoring Programs suitable volunteers can act as leaders and/or helpers while they experience opportunities to learn how to ID wildlife, critters and tree species, and monitor tree growth.  
Those who step forward to help with gardening learn about water efficiency, and what plants are habitat or food for which wildlife and important insect species. And very importantly, what plants are invaders that overrun our local natural spaces if not kept in check through removal and replacement plantings. Of course the learning occurs while engaged in hands-on projects that may include getting your hands dirty, while digging, planting, weeding, watering. Then, take a walk in the park and watch your work “grow! The Park is a great place to meet others while enjoying the outdoors!
