Leader Training op!
Greetings Potential Restoration Crew Leaders,
I am writing to invite you to Wildlands Restoration Volunteer's annual crew
leader training in March, offered in partnership with the Outdoor Stewardship
Crew leaders are integral to the success of every project. Crew leadership is a
great way to multiply the value of your stewardship of public lands, build your
professional leadership skills, and help other volunteers have a rewarding and
fun experience! The leadership skills you develop will be transferable to many
other professional and personal parts of your life as well. This training is
designed to help you develop team building skills, situational leadership
skills, proper tool usage techniques, and volunteer care and safety protocols.
You will also be introduced to the field of ecological restoration and get
hands-on practice as a restoration crew leader.
Saturday and Sunday, March 15-16, 2008
St. Vrain State Park, east of Longmont. Directions will be sent out later.
This training fills up quickly, so register early to ensure a spot (see
registration info below).
Please spread the word to anyone who might be interested in this training.
WHAT YOU'LL LEARN
* Team building skills
* Situational leadership skills
* Introduction to restoration methods (planting, seeding, erosion control)
* Proper tool usage
* Volunteer safety and enjoyment
* Hands-on practice as a crew leader in a safe supportive setting with your
fellow crew leader trainees
After you take this crew leader training, WRV can match you up with a skilled
crew leader mentor on one or more projects in 2008, giving you a chance to
practice your newly acquired skills with ample support and guidance. When you
feel ready, you can begin leading crews on your own.
This full two-day training costs $50. This fee covers basic costs like a
comprehensive crew leader training manual, a set of crew leader quick reference
cards, and your meals. Additional donations are welcome to support our training
