About the Workshop
This workshop will give you an opportunity to learn monitoring skills or to refresh your skills for the new season. We ask any monitors who have never been to a workshop, including new volunteers, to attend. Workshops are held from 9:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. A confirmation will be sent after registration and directions will follow shortly before workshop date.
