School Year Conservation Crew
These school year programs, typically on weekends, introduce high school-age participants to urban forestry, environmental education, stormwater management and related outdoor conservation projects.
Young adult conservation crews (age 18+) complete various field-based conservation projects throughout the year. Each crew has its own goals and focuses on removing invasive species, restoring habitat, constructing trails, maintaining trails, urban forestry and more.
Crew Leaders supervise and train SCA conservation crews working in the field. These paid outdoor positions guide, inspire and motivate our high school and young adult participants while making critical decisions daily regarding the safety and well-being of our crew members. During training and throughout the season, crew leaders gain experience and expertise in various conservation skills like trail building, habitat restoration, environmental education, urban forestry, and community outreach. These positions are great for young professionals building their conservation and environmental work experience.
