Coastal Conservation
Youth Corps

What could be better than spending time along the shores of Lake Huron learning about diverse ecosystems and dynamics while taking action to conserve and restore these special places? How about spending 1 summer week or 2 fall weekends working with a team of youth gaining hands-on experience with dune restoration, invasive species removal, shoreline surveys, plant identification, beach clean-ups and so much more?

ONE WEEK
endless possibilities
