Rutgers Environmental Steward Class Sign-up

Hillsborough residents are lucky that the central Jersey Rutgers Cooperative Extension's Environmental Steward classes are offered right here at Duke Farms.  Sign-up for the class of 2013 has now started.  From their press release:
Consider joining the 2013 class of Rutgers Cooperative Extension's Environmental Steward training which will be offered in Atlantic, Warren, and Somerset counties, from January to June.
The curriculum is designed to introduce non-scientists to the science underlying key environmental issues in the Garden State. Leading authorities from academia are joined by colleagues from government and the non-profit sector to share understanding and insights with the students. “Students do not only receive facts, but also are introduced to a network of expert individuals and organizations who can be of service to them in the future as they wrestle with solving local environmental problems” said Bruce Barbour, Extension Agent with Rutgers Cooperative Extension, the programs originator.
