Transform conservation awareness into action by joining Teen Conservation Crew!

What It’s About

Teen Conservation Crew is a paid opportunity for 9th and 10th grade students to gain hands-on experience in mitigating climate change within the community. Teen Conservation Crew mates participate in classes, projects and excursions such as oyster reef builds, saltmarsh grass planting, dolphin population surveys, artificial reef ball construction, flood monitoring and more! Crew mates culminate their semesters by planning their own resilience-related projects.
