Pepperwood is excited to offer a brand-new certification class, the UC Climate Stewards certification. Participants in this course will learn how climate is changing both our natural and social systems, and what they can do to improve ecosystem and community resilience. We will discuss the latest climate science, practice effectively communicating climate science, and participate in field-based activities to deepen our understanding of how fire and water are impacting our community within the context of climate change.

Through a hybrid of class discussions, self-paced online learning, and independent field-based activities, participants will become engaged and empowered to help increase community and ecosystem resilience now and for future generations. The class discussion meetings will be online via Zoom.

Sign up today to become a certified Climate Steward and a force for positive proactive change in your community!
