December 2011 saw the first class of twelve Neighborhood Sustainability Steward Volunteers graduate at OSU Extension Service Benton County. Graduates received training in reducing their personal carbon emissions through sustainable living practices. They attended eight weeks of classes and a field day taught by local experts. Throughout the course they learn techniques and skills to work with the public as an effective volunteer team. Graduates give back to the community 30 hours of volunteer time sharing the sustainable living skills that they learned during class. Look for Sustainability Stewards in your community at events, educational projects, and meetings throughout the year. They have a wealth of information and resources to share with you.
