We take a three-pronged approach to developing a stewardship ethic among local and urban youth including: recreation, environmental education and career development. Our recreation-focused programs include Friday Night for Teens and Greenville Outdoor Adventure Learning (GOAL). Through the Greenville High School Natural Resources Program, local high school students learn about natural resource conservation and management through hands-on classroom and field-based learning opportunities. Finally, local and urban youth are exposed to a variety of career options and learn new skills during internships with our Plumas Conservation, Restoration and Education in Watersheds (P-CREW) program.
