The Rutgers Environmental Steward Program is Offering an Online Class for 2022!  Classes begin Tuesday, January 25.

Are you concerned about the environment? Would you like to have a positive impact on your community but don’t know how? Consider the Rutgers Environmental Steward Program!

The Rutgers Environmental Steward program is designed to introduce non-scientists to the science behind important environmental issues affecting NJ. Stewards then give back to their own communities by helping to tackle local environmental problems. If you have a passion for the environment, a desire to learn and a willingness to volunteer, then this program is for you!

In 2022 we are excited to offer a hybrid of Zoom sessions, in-person instruction, field trips, and on-demand electives! In order to become a Certified Environmental Steward, participants must complete a 60-hour internship of their choosing. The internship exposes the Stewards to real-world environmental issues in their communities. 

Online Class Details:

  • Classes meet Tuesdays from 5 to 8 p.m. from January 25 through May 17, 2022.
