About CTP

You're never too old to learn and you're never too young to teach.

The Conservation Training Partnerships program partners teens (rising 9th-12th graders) and adult volunteers and supports the team in carrying out a conservation-based community project.

Teams participate together in a hands-on, two-day workshop where they learn about local natural resources and apply innovative mapping and web tools in outdoor conservation field activities. The teams then design and develop an environmental action tailored to their interests and carry it out in their community.
