Park celebrates Youth Conservation Program

/

Grand Teton National Park Foundation is celebrating the fifteenth anniversary of the Youth Conservation Program. The conservation corps was launched in 2006 to steward the next generation of conservation leaders; aligning with the core mission of the National Park Service to foster a land ethic and an appreciation for the outdoors in young people.

This powerful and immersive program employs sixteen to nineteen-year-olds on Grand Teton’s trail crew, accomplishing critical stewardship projects while also cultivating job skills and supporting aspiring leaders as they make career and lifestyle decisions. Over the years, the corps has grown in both size and impact, regularly employing twenty to twenty-four young people a season during a typical year.
