If you are interested in becoming a TEAM volunteer you need to do the following:

  1. Look at the volunteer description that details the duties of TEAM volunteers.
  2. Click here to fill out a TEAM volunteer application form and submit it electronically.
  3. Attend a 3-day Training Course given twice a year in February/March and in August. Dates for these are posted in late December and late June.

The first 2015 three-day training will be held on the following dates:

Friday, February 20th - (9:30-3:00)
Friday, February 27th - (9:30-3:00)
Thursday, March 5th - (10:00-3:00)

On February 20th and 27th the training will be held a the DNR Tawes Building at 580 Taylor Avenue, Annapolis, MD 21401.

On Thursday, March 5th the training will be held at Jug Bay Wetlands Sanctuary in Lothian, MD (about 1/2 hour from the Tawes Building).

Volunteers are expected to attend all three trainings, as they each cover different modules or TEAM programs. Volunteers are expected to then observe in-school programs until they feel comfortable to team with another TEAM volunteer. Then, volunters are asked to do at least 4 separate program dates a year to remain active.

Currently, TEAM offers Maryland schools free classroom programs on the following topics:

  • Chesapeake Bay Watershed
  • Streams and Macroinvertebrates
  • Oyster Reefs
  • Horseshoe Crabs
  • Chesapeake Watermen
