Interns work in teams to learn about the river and its surrounding environment. Each intern develops skills to lead volunteers, including military, students and the community.
Mentors offer insightful lectures, conversations and hands-on learning opportunities to keep interns learning and engaged.
Each Intern learns first-hand about biodiversity, conservation, the impact humans have on the river, and how everyone can become an agent of positive change.
Interns gain valuable job skills through hands-on learning in horticulture, landscape design, landscape maintenance and outdoor leadership education.
Youth Conservation Interns become certified Chesapeake Bay Landscape Professional Associates by completing this entry-level certificate course that introduces students to green infrastructure and training on sustainable landscaping practices that help restore the Chesapeake Bay and our cherished waterways.
