Pinellas County Extension is excited to announce registration is now open for Class V of the Florida Waters Stewardship Program 2021!

This will be the 5th year that Extension is offering the program and the first year it will be offered in the morning. The past four years the program took place in the evenings, but this year the time is being changed in order to reach those who couldn’t make evenings work.

Classes will start August 25th and meet every other week (in-person) from 9 a.m. to noon on Wednesdays.

Instructor Lara Milligan will use expert presentations, online explorations, experiential learning, field experience in watershed science, and communication skills training to foster in participants a greater understanding of these interactions and to provide the tools necessary to become stewards of our water resources.

During this seven-session course, participants will travel to locations across Pinellas County to explore the natural beauty, learn about emerging water issues, and meet with local experts.

Participants will also plan and implement an individual (or group) stewardship project that makes a difference in the community, attend a relevant stakeholder meeting and explore online resources to learn more about water between class sessions.

You can find out more details and register on the Pinellas County Extension Eventbrite website at:

The cost of the course is $89.00. If the cost of the program will prevent you from participating, please complete a scholarship application. Application deadline is Friday, August 13th.

Please share this flyer with friends, family, or coworkers who may be interested in taking the course.
