Project Leadership Training

COMPLETED
Intermediate    ●    Full Day    ●    Miniumum Age: 18 (more info)

Date(s):
SaturdayFeb 23, 2013 - Number of Volunteers: 25

Would you enjoy working with a great team of fellow volunteers to take the helm of a WRV restoration project and lead it to success? If leadership, teamwork, project planning and getting "behind the scenes" with restoration sound like they're up your alley, you're a great candidate to become a Project Leader! Consider taking our training to become a Project Leader or Assistant Project Leader for the 2013 season.

WHAT IS PROJECT LEADERSHIP?
The Project Leader works with the project leadership team, land managers, and WRV staff, and is the single person with the comprehensive "big picture" view of a project. WRV depends upon many dedicated volunteers to complete thirty stewardship projects on public lands each year. Most WRV projects are managed by a leadership team that includes a project leader, technical advisor, cook team, tool manager and sometimes others. The Project Leader coordinates the team and ensures that all aspects of a project are taken care of prior to the project event.

Most new Project Leaders start off as an Assistant Project Leader, working with an experienced Project Leader to learn the ropes of project management. Assisting is a great way to gradually step into the role.

**You're never on your own as a leader in WRV - fellow volunteers and the WRV staff are here to help you through every step of the process.**

An integral part of becoming a WRV Project Leader is understanding WRV projects and leadership team. It is highly recommended that all PL trainees complete or will complete basic Crew Leader training as this training will build upon these fundamentals. In some cases substantial WRV experience can be substituted for this requirement and if you are really excited about becoming a WRV project leader but don't have any experience with our projects you are more than welcome to give us a call to discuss options.

TRAINING FEE
Regular Fee: $50
Discounted Fee: $25 (for current dues-paying members and volunteers, this fee covers the cost to print the manual and provide food).
Scholarships are available. If you are an active WRV member, do not let the cost stop you from becoming a the next great WRV Project Leader. Please call the office to discuss.

Technical Advisor Orientation - Boulder

COMPLETED
Easy    ●    Evening    ●    Miniumum Age: 16 (more info)

Date(s):
WednesdayMar 06, 2013 - Number of Volunteers: 15

We'll discuss the roles and responsibilities of a WRV Technical Advisor (TA), and how the TA works within a WRV Project Team. We'll discuss how to plan a project that accomplishes the desired technical goals, but also works well for crew leaders and volunteers. The training runs from 6:00pm to 9:00pm. Arrive at 5:30pm to for food!

This is NOT a training session on the technical design aspects of projects. Since projects vary so much, and employ so many different restoration techniques, the best way to learn design is "on the job" as an assistant technical advisor.

We'll have some time during the session for returning TAs to describe the highlights of what they have learned being a TA.

WRV has a relatively small TA community, so we also want this meeting to be a venue to meet each other, share ideas, and ask questions of your peers.

Tool Manager Orientation -- BOULDER

COMPLETED
Easy    ●    Evening    ●    Miniumum Age: 16 (more info)

Date(s):
WednesdayMar 27, 2013 - Number of Volunteers: 70

Every WRV project requires tools. No Tools, No Project! Tool managers are the beloved volunteers who put so much care into organizing the tools and gear for a project, and transporting them to and from the worksite. Tool management is a great way to get more involved with a project without a lot of training or experience. And, you can usually take off during the middle of a project to relax or recreate if you like.

On this March 27 evening, from 5:00 to 7:30pm, we'll gather at our tool shed in Gunbarrel to talk about how tool managers work with the rest of project planning team, assemble a tool list, transport tools to and from the site, stage tools for crews, help with camp set-up, and more. You'll have a chance to see our spectacular collection of tools and ask questions. Once trained you can mentor with an experienced tool manager to learn on a real project!

Date(s):
SaturdayJun 15, 2013 - Number of Volunteers: 20

This fun 6-hour long training is an opportunity for volunteers to learn the basics of botany, seed collection and crew leadership for our Native Seed Collections in 2013. Seed collections are some of the most relaxing WRV projects a crew leader can engage in. No experience necessary!

WRV will be working with Boulder County (BCPOS) and City of Boulder (OSMP) to expand our native seed collection efforts. Crew Leaders are essential to the success of our seed collection projects. Without seeds, restoration is difficult. And without crew leaders, collecting good seed is nearly impossible. Come join the crew leader ranks and have a great time leading crews this summer!

We offer this training to strengthen our leadership team at WRV and our partner agencies, BCPOS and OSMP.
This course includes a commitment to leading at least 2 seed collections this season.

Crew Leader Training in Flood Recovery

SCHEDULED
Intermediate    ●    Full Day    ●    Miniumum Age: 18 (more info)

Date(s):
FridayOct 25, 2013 - Number of Volunteers: 25

The recent historic flood has caused a staggering amount of damage to trails, infrastructure and natural resources across the Front Range, particularly in Boulder County. In the coming weeks and months, there will be a need to engage thousands of volunteers to repair trails and restore streams and other natural resources impacted by the flood. To manage all of these volunteers, we will need many crew leaders.

Crew leadership with WRV is one of the best ways to step up and make the most difference. Your skills and passion will be multiplied by the volunteers you lead.

At this one day training, you will learn crew management and trail/restoration skills through hands-on practice to become a crew leader.

Crew leaders are some of the most important people on any successful project. Crew leadership is a great way to enhance your stewardship of public lands and build your professional leadership skills while helping other volunteers get the most out of a project! This training will help you develop team building skills, situational leadership skills, proper tool usage techniques, and volunteer care and safety protocols.

If our training location permits, you will also be introduced to the ecological restoration and trail repair techniques and get hands-on practice as a crew leader.
