The Chesapeake Bay Foundation (CBF) is pleased to announce that registration is now open for its very popular Hampton Roads adult education course, VoiCeS (Volunteers as Chesapeake Stewards), which will be held from Oct. 9 to November 14.
The six classes focus on water quality and stewardship, and feature in-depth sessions taught by experts from CBF and other organizations. Classes will meet mainly on Monday evenings from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at CBF’s Brock Environmental Center at 3663 Marlin Bay Drive in Virginia Beach.
- Chesapeake Bay history, ecology and wildlife;
- Urban and rural solutions to pollution;
- Local restoration projects;
- Fisheries updates; and
- Citizen action and advocacy.
Following the course, participants will be asked to perform a minimum 40 hours of Bay-related volunteer service. Successful graduates receive CBF’s designation as a “Chesapeake Steward.” A $25 fee per individual ($40.00 per couple) will cover the costs of materials and field trips.
