Snohomish County Sustainable Community Stewards

(formerly Carbon Masters)
Sustainable Community Stewards Program

Who Are the Sustainable Community Stewards?

Sustainable Community Stewards are volunteers working to help individuals and communities adopt sustainable practices that are grounded in credible climate change and natural resources science and options that are relevant in Snohomish County. Sustainable Community Stewards encourage behavior change and civic engagement that result in cleaner water and air for all to enjoy.

How Does It Work?

Learn how you can truly make a difference, both at home and around the world! Join us for the next Sustainable Community Stewards training! Volunteers receive 40 hours of professional-level education including presentations, field trips and experiential activities. Volunteers commit to volunteer 40 hours over the next year on interesting projects already established, or that they choose to create. That’s less than four hours a month!

The training will cover topics such as:

  • Climate Change
  • Biodiversity
  • Solid Waste and Recycling
  • Behavior Change Techniques
  • Alternative Energy
  • Soils and Agriculture

As a knowledgeable, trained WSU Extension Sustainable Community Steward, you’ll be able to educate others on proven alternatives and new information that quickly contributes to a better future.

What Do Sustainable Community Stewards Do?

We are educators who share research-based information with others to encourage practices that protect and conserve the environment and wold we live in. Each Sustainable Community Steward chooses their own project.

Here are our current projects:

Other projects we’re working on include:

Ways You Can Become More Sustainable
