SUMMER CREW

Students serve from 8 AM-4 PM Monday through Friday, for 5 weeks.  They work on conservation projects throughout the Houston area, serving with local nonprofits and city, state, and federal agency partners such as the Houston Arboretum & Nature Center, Galveston Island State Park, and Memorial Park. Students also spend 4-10 hours a week on environmental education discussions, educational field trips, and outdoor recreation.  Participants receive a stipend for their service work.

SCHOOL YEAR PROGRAM

During the School-Year Program, youth attend five camping weekends at parks and nature areas around Houston.  Each weekend features an intensive conservation service project such as trail building, habitat restoration, or invasive species removal, and crew members also participate in environmental education activities and outdoor recreation designed to instill a greater appreciation for the outdoors.
