Volunteer Events and Professional Development Requirement

As of January 1, 2014, Restoration Supervisors will be required to attend a minimum of 10 events throughout the year.
  • A minimum of five (5) events must consist of Saint Paul Natural Resources volunteer events (typically April–October).

In order to receive credit for professional development events, we ask Restoration Supervisors to either (a) write a blog post about the event for the Restore Saint Paul or (b) prepare a brief presentation for fellow volunteers that will cover topics learned. Those itnerested in blogging must first read through the blog post expectations.
