If a member of your land trust, conservation commission, or other community volunteer is interested in working with high school students as part of the CTP, there is still time to learn more and sign-up!
CTP is a great way to inspire the next generation of conservationists and benefit your community by working together to address local environmental issues.
And it’s free! ... How’s that for an opportunity to make a difference?
Amy Blaymore Paterson, Executive Director
CTP partners teens (rising 9th-12th graders) and adult conservation volunteers, and supports the team in carrying out a conservation-based community project. The team participates in an interactive 2-day field workshop, and applies conservation and innovative mapping and web tools in field activities. The team then designs and carries out a conservation project of any intensity and implements it in their town.
The Connecticut Land Conservation Council works in partnership with land trusts throughout the state to advocate for land conservation, stewardship and funding to ensure the long term strength and viability of the land conservation community.
