Climate Stewards is a new volunteer program through Cornell Cooperative Extension of Tompkins County that builds upon the successful models of CCE’s existing Master Gardener and Master Composter volunteer programs. Trainees will learn what is already taking place in Tompkins County to combat climate change, and how, as volunteers, they can help our municipalities implement even more changes.
The Climate Stewards training consists of 12 modules taught over 12 weeks – from June 9th through August 25th, 2021. The modules include slide presentations, outside readings and videos, group activities, and work toward final action projects. When the training is complete, Stewards will volunteer 40 hours within their first year.
We need you to help make this program part of Tompkins County’s successful approach to combating climate change!
