It's a wrap: YO participants lead service projects

By Li Her and Wah Wah, Conservation Corps Youth Council members

The Youth Outdoors spring session recently wrapped up with youth leading projects and educational activities focused on natural resources and community service. Throughout each 11-week session, participants based at neighborhood rec centers in Saint Paul, Ramsey County and Minneapolis plan and organize service projects that engage communities in volunteer work. On Saturday, June 1, four Saint Paul crews, six Minneapolis crews and two Ramsey crews led projects to build, plant, clean up and educate. Take a look at the great work they accomplished!
