YOUTH LEADERS FOR ENVIRONMENTAL ACTION
We are thrilled to announce our developing internship program with youth from area high schools. Interns have the opportunity to explore work in land conservation, event management, marketing and communications, and fundraising. Students learn about our conservation mission and the benefits that our projects provide to the community. To become an intern with the Land Trust, students go through an application process and meet with both staff and board members.
