Youth Environmental Stewardship

“I think the program so far has been great. The work was always done to my satisfaction. They had a great impact on the care for the preserves (Binky Lee and Bryn Coed) with trail maintenance (installing new water bars and mulching/pruning back/stick clean up), to the tree planting and maintenance of the tubex, removal of wire fencing, etc. Also, I think the education part is important too. Learning and working with your hands and different tools is great for them.”

YES is a program that focuses on creating the next generation of land stewards and takes place on weekdays and Saturdays in the Spring and Fall. A small cohort work on a variety of conservation projects at local preserves. Projects include planting trees, trail maintenance and construction, invasive species removal and various beautification projects. As the name implies, there is an emphasis on conservation, and participants explore the possible career opportunities in that field.
