The Park Stewardship Program provides two to four service learning projects per week for local schools and youth organizations during the school year. These hands-on programs include hiking local trails, restoring park habitat, learning basic ecological concepts, and camping outdoors (often for the first time). The goal of these introductory programs is to provide opportunities for ongoing involvement to those students who connect with their experience and want to take it to the next level. At the same time, these programs seek to improve the parkland while working to connect the next generation of stewards to their local national park and adjacent open space. Community and educational partnerships, maintained and enhanced throughout the school year, are instrumental in connecting youth with Park Stewardship programs and activities.
