The Sammamish Stewards steering committee meets quarterly. There are many projects always underway and those teams set their own meeting schedules.
To become a steward you would meet with one of the steering committee members to discuss your areas of interest.
Many of the Native Plant Stewards have attended the Master Native Plant Stewardship training through the Washington Native Plant Society while others have attended the Habitat Steward training through the National Wildlife Federation.
We love new faces and welcome you to the group! There are many volunteer opportunities available such as working at a table during a local event, helping our group at the farmers market, helping with Earth Day, working on a park restoration site removing invasive plants and planting natives, organizing programs, etc.
The NWF is an organization which works to unite all Americans to ensure wildlife thrive in a rapidly changing world. The NWF offers the Habitat Steward training periodically throughout the year for those interested in learning more about habitat creation and restoration.
