This summer, 55 youth and 10 crew leaders spent 6 weeks exploring, creating and learning in outdoor spaces all over Milwaukee. Each of the 6 crews worked hard to finish different projects ranging from urban farming and gardening, to trail building and invasive species removal. Members experienced a wide-range of hands-on conservation projects and environmental education opportunities, thanks to our community partners:
Milwaukee County Parks
Hunger Task Force Farm & Fish Hatchery
Neighborhood House Nature Center
Urban Ecology Center
Thanks to everyone who helped make this summer a huge success, including Johnson Controls Inc. who hosted our annual Green Jobs Day at their headquarters in Glendale. We’re looking forward to next summer!
If you are interested being part of the Milwaukee team, recruitment for Crew Leaders begins in February for our summer 2013 program.
