Stewards: If you would like to help anytime this summer, please use this SignUpGenius OR contact Joan right away. Tina provides personalized customized training for YOU:

  1. Sign up for a date and come. With a kit presentation, you can read the script/instructions and we discuss how to engage people.  Watch Tina for a while and help when you are comfortable.
  2. Stewards pick a topic of interest or expertise; Beach walk, plastic trash, habitat, changing environment, wrack and detritus, animals found at the beach, shellfish and toxins, plants at the beach, forest/bluffs relation to beach, art in nature. At the site we discuss how to talk about these topics to people of varying ages and respect people’s time with short information sessions.  Wort with Tina with our audience then move to separate presentation locations (one person will sit at the pop-up table and others will move into the field for talks & ID).
  3. Schedule a session or multiple training sessions soon where people can come get this training ahead of time without having the pressure of having people there watching.  We can do some interactive training with group divided into audience and SWS educators. Talk with Joan if you want training in advance of your pop-up dates.

SWS extends warm appreciation to Re/Max Community Chest for the grant that helps make summer 2022 pop-ups possible!
