SOLVE Stream Team Captain Training

January 26, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm

From the high deserts of the eastern part of our state, to the peaks of Mount Hood and Mount Jefferson, all the way through our thriving forests and to our rocky coast, our natural areas are what make Oregon unique and special. At SOLVE we’re committed to bringing Oregonians together to improve and preserve our environment and we need your help this spring. Become a SOLVE project leader to help connect volunteers across the state to hands on projects where they can make a difference. There are a variety of leadership roles for every level of interest. Check out our upcoming trainings below or contact us for more details!

Stream Team Captains lead volunteers on stream restoration and enhancement projects throughout the Portland-metro area. SOLVE adopts restoration sites for three to five years working with volunteers, community groups, crews, agencies and other non-profit partners to improve the health and function of stream corridors and wetlands. Stream Team Captains provide leadership, organization and supervision to volunteers for Saturday morning events. Stream Team Captains also instruct volunteers in invasive plant removal techniques and proper planting techniques while working closely with SOLVE staff to fulfill stream restoration and enhancement goals. Upon completion of this training, Stream Team Captains commit to lead at least three Team Up volunteer events involving planting native species, invasive plant removal, native plant identification, mulching, and watering. Additional training in basic botany, bioengineering, advanced classes in native and invasive plant ID, as well as winter twig ID are also available to Stream Team Captains during the course of the year.
