Sustainability

OSU Extension’s innovative Neighborhood Sustainability Stewards volunteer program engages the local community in climate change actions on a household level. Our goals are: to engage the general public in a climate change conversation, to give the public tools to lower CO2 emissions on a household level, and to give them skills to live sustainably in a changing world.

Make a difference in your community - join the Neighborhood Sustainability Steward Program. Attend an 8-week course to increase your knowledge of energy savings and sustainable living practices in your own home. Course topics include climate change science, transportation options, energy conservation, sustainable food systems, waste reduction, water conservation, sustainable gardening and landscaping, ecosystems and habitats, outreach and volunteering. Cost is only $20 and includes field trip transportation. Don’t miss this exciting opportunity to learn how you can do your part to combat climate change. Registration deadline Jan. 12.
