2021 Land Trust Teen Conservation Crew Announcement:
Unfortunately, due to current global crisis surrounding COVID-19, the Land Trust has made the difficult decision not to enroll a Teen Conservation Crew for the 2021 season. This decision was not made lightly, but due to the continuing unpredictable impacts to our community and the current age restrictions on the COVID-19 vaccine, we know this is the right decision to make. Each year, the Land Trust’s Teen Conservation Crew provides a unique and rewarding opportunity for students to take part in important stewardship activities, while learning about the value of land conservation. Please know that we look forward to resuming the program in 2022.
Each summer the Bainbridge Island Land Trust hires a dedicated crew of teens aged 14 and older to work on conservation lands. The Land Trust Teen Conservation Crew provides a unique summer employment opportunity for students. The crew performs invasive plant removal, property clean up, and other stewardship tasks needed on protected properties. This program is financially supported by cost-share with easement owners, the Bainbridge Community Foundation, private donors and the Land Trust.
