Conservation

Conservation youth interns support and improve green spaces around the East Side, and participate in the restoration of local parks through removal of invasive plant material, native seed collection and installation of native plants. We teach hands-on skills through the installation and maintenance of rain and pollinator gardens in public and private spaces. Youth also engage in citizen science projects, such as insect surveys, water sampling, and forest inventories.

Learning conservation sparks a life-long awareness of the world around us, and opens new possibilities for career choices in the future.
