Call for Education Volunteers

The Putah Creek Council Education Team is a group of diverse and talented leaders who work with our staff at environmental education field trips and help connect students to Putah Creek. Education Team volunteers commit to a year-long leadership role within Putah Creek Council. They act as instructors and guides on elementary- and middle-school field trips, help with in-class lessons and assemblies, and are a crucial component in the Council’s mission to educate the community about Putah Creek. 

Four training opportunities are offered for those looking to make a difference in the environmental awareness of local youth. Trainings will take place at the Putah Creek Council office (107 Main Street, Winters) on the following dates/times:
