NOAA Climate Stewards is now NOAA Planet Stewards!
The NOAA Climate Stewards Education Project is now the NOAA Planet Stewards Education Project. We are expanding our scope to include a wider range of NOAA topics related to understanding and protecting our environment. This means we will focus on a larger number of subjects such as decreasing the impacts of marine debris, conserving and restoring natural resources, and understanding and responding to severe weather events. We will continue our programmatic emphasis on climate as a driver of environmental impacts to humans and natural ecosystems.
This change will allow us to better serve many educators looking to engage their students in citizen science and hands-on stewardship activities that relate to the broad range of NOAA's mission programs. If you have engaged us through our distance learning efforts, i.e. webinars, book club meetings, at our face-to-face workshops, or through the development and implementation of a stewardship project - we thank you for your support over the last seven years and look forward to bringing you exciting opportunities this year. For those who are new to this program, welcome!
