Event Description

Do you enjoy working with others while taking care of the Earth? If so, we encourage you to become a Restoration Team Leader. You will develop professional ecological skills, practice the land ethic, and give back to your community. Team leaders play a critical role in restoring Arboretum prairies and savannas by supervising other volunteers at Saturday morning ecological restoration work parties. They also gain invaluable personal and professional experience as they learn about native ecosystems and plants, manage and maintain native landscapes, and develop leadership and communication skills. Team leaders get to know the Arboretum and how it works in every season. Restoration Team Leader Training will begin October 2, 2019 and costs $100; deadline for the application is September 25. You will participate in an extensive training that includes working outdoors, online and in-class time, and Adult First Aid/CPR/AED Certification; training is Wednesday and Thursday nights from 6-9 PM, Saturdays are from 8:30 AM-4:30 PM. We ask for a big commitment, and we provide a unique and enduring opportunity in leadership and ecological restoration. For more information (including position description, schedule, and application form), please contact Marian Farrior at (608) 265-5214 or marian.farrior@wisc.edu.
