Michigan Conservation Stewards Program- Oakland Cohort

October 4, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - December 6, 2023 @ 9:00 pm EDT


Michigan State University Extension’s Conservation Stewards Program (CSP) is now enrolling participants for its Fall 2023 programs, which will span 10 weeks beginning the week of September 11 and running through the week of November 13.

This educational program, offered by Michigan State University Extension and many local partner organizations, is geared toward those who are enthusiastic about learning science-based ecosystem management principles and sharing this knowledge with others to help improve their local communities. Through CSP, participants learn essential strategies to understand and help restore and conserve ecosystems in Michigan communities.

Each week of instruction, this hybrid program combines virtual, self-paced lessons with in-person evening sessions at various locations within each cohort’s region. Additionally, 1-2 Saturday in-person field trips within each cohort’s region will take place, along with participants completing applied capstone projects related to restoring and conserving Michigan’s ecosystems, with guidance provided by a local mentor.
The last date to register will be Wednesday, Aug. 30, 2023, with partial scholarship opportunities available.

The Oakland cohort will meet on Wednesdays from 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm on the following 8 dates: September 13, 20, 27; October 4, 11, 18, 25; and November 15. These sessions will meet in locations throughout Oakland county.
Please note, no evening sessions will be held on Nov. 1 and Nov. 8, 2023.

Saturday field trips will be held on Oct. 7 and Oct. 21, 2023.
