About CTP

CTP partners teens (rising 9th-12th graders) and adult conservation volunteers, and supports the team in carrying out a conservation-based community project.

The team participates in an interactive 2-day field workshop, and applies conservation and innovative mapping and web tools in field activities. The team then designs and carries out a conservation project of any intensity and implements it in their town.
