The NSRWA’s new Stewardship Certificate is a program geared towards educating youth about the many unique local South Shore habitats, and engaging them to create a stewardship project that has a positive impact on their communities. Students will explore their own interests and passions as they work with the NSRWA to put together a project that will be beneficial to the environment, and rewarding for their professional careers.
The Stewardship Certificate Program begins with a series of short videos produced by the NSRWA highlighting the valuable and diverse habitats to be found across the South Shore area (see video below). Topics include salt marshes, coastal dunes, estuaries, herring runs, tidal zones, and barrier beaches. Once the students have watched the videos, they will work in collaboration with the NSRWA putting together a meaningful service project of their choice which benefits the environment and community, as well as supporting their professional careers.
The Stewardship Certificate will be a powerful addition to a resume or college application for a student interested and passionate about exploring the possibilities within a coastal, marine, outdoor, or environmental career.
