TWU Ecosystem Study Area Stewardship Program

The TWU ESA Stewardship Program is a unique opportunity for staff and students with an interest in nature to get involved with what they enjoy. It is also excellent experience for those interested in the fields of Geography, Biology, or Environmental Studies.

The main responsibility of an ESA steward is to spend a minimum of one hour a week (recommended 2-3 hours) patrolling the ESA. This is simply walking through the area wearing an "ESA Steward" vest, enjoying nature, cleaning up litter, talking to people on the trails, and speaking to those who may be causing problems. Other tasks may include opportunities to help out with restoration and building projects, become involved in monitoring projects and other academic studies, and lead or participate in nature tours.
