Rutgers Environmental Stewards 2019

Thursdays from January 24-June 13

Anyone can become an Environmental Steward!

This program is designed to introduce non-scientists to the science behind important environmental issues affecting NJ. Stewards then give back to their own communities by helping to solve local environmental problems. If you have a passion for the environment, a desire to learn and a willingness to volunteer, then this program is for you!

Classes are taught by experts from Rutgers University and non-profit and government organizations. Fieldtrips to environmentally significant sites around the state are included as part of the program.

To become a certified Rutgers Environmental Steward, graduates of the class portion of the program complete a unique 60-hour volunteer internship of their choosing.
