Register for the 2012 Class of the Mississippi Habitat Stewards Program

Mississippi Habitat Stewards Program is a project of Mississippi Wildlife Federation and National Wildlife Federation.  The 2012 class is sponsored by BP.   In exchange for 24 hours of training, each participant will commit 100 hours of volunteer service on partner lands: working to build nature trails, monitor existing nature trails, public relations, management and monitoring for invasive species, planting native plants and many other exciting projects.

Mississippi Habitat Stewards Program Partners are the owners and managers of important natural areas where we work.  In 2011, the inaugural year of Habitat Stewards Program, volunteers contributed approximately 700 hours of class training and 400 hours of labor caring for Partner properties:

  1. Mississippi Department of Marine Resources Coastal Preserves Program
  2. Mississippi Sandhill Crane National Wildlife Refuge
  3. Land Trust for the Mississippi Coastal Plain
  4. USM Marine Education Center, Cedar Point
