Teens Conserving Nature
CEED’s summer Leadership and Conservation Program gives your teen the chance to not just learn about conservation, but also do real conservation work. One of the projects this summer will be to learn to use apps like iNaturalist to identify plant and animal species on the 60 acres of Brookhaven and Suffolk County land CEED stewards. This will help us document invasive and threatened species, so we can make long-term plans to improve our habitat. Then the young people will develop their leadership skills by designing and creating ways to teach younger kids about nature and conservation.
And “Leadership and Conservation Program” looks great on a college application!
There is a three-week program and a two-week program. Register today to make sure you can fit your family’s summer schedule.
