The Bainbridge Island Land Trust hires a dedicated crew of teens aged 15 and older to work on conservation lands during the summer. The Land Trust Teen Conservation Crew performs valuable conservation work such as invasive plant removal, property clean up, and other stewardship tasks on island conservation lands in partnership with conservation easement landowners or on Land Trust-owned lands. This program is financially supported by cost-share with easement owners, the Bainbridge Community Foundation, private donors and the Land Trust.
The program offers high school students a unique opportunity to earn money while making a noticeable difference in the health of our island ecosystems, and learn more about the Land Trust’s mission.
