Jo Robbins, Drums, was one of 26 volunteers who completed the Pennsylvania Forest Stewards Volunteer Program's training in October after participating in two weekend workshops on forest stewardship at Camp Krislund in Centre County. Robbins was trained to promote forest stewardship in his community. To become a volunteer, he completed more than 40 hours of classroom and field training in forest and wildlife management, ecology, biodiversity, silviculture, erosion control, communication and other subjects related to stewardship.
