The Children's Forest Leadership Program provides youth between the ages of 11 and 17 the opportunity to take a roll in public land stewardship. Children become volunteers dedicated to providing public education, making decisions about land management, and participating in hands-on projects including:

Managing a native plant greenhouse, forest restoration, trail maintenance, leading and participating in interpretive programs, recreational exploration, and providing informationto the public at the Children's Forest Visitor Information Center.

Adults can lead school programs, help in the greenhouse, and staff the Children's Forest Visitor Information Center in the summer months.

This is a great opportunity to help the forest around you and to educate visitors about the surrounding environment!
