Teen Conservation Crew Hard at Work!
The Land Trust’s Teen Conservation Crew is in their second week of work for the 2017 season. We’ve hired a crew of 10 dedicated high school students to perform valuable conservation work during 14 days this summer.
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 about the work of the Land Trust. Work began on June 22nd with two days of training on a beautiful private conservation easement. Crew members learned the ins and outs of invasive plant removal and how to safely handle various tools.
Work continues this week on the Land Trust’s own Agate Passage Preserve. The crew is working hard to spread mulch around young native plants to help the retain moisture and stay cool during the summer months. Other tasks might include invasive plant removal, beach clean-up, or restoration work.
