2018-19 Schedule


Apply to the Program!
Spring 2018

Application due 6 weeks before workshop...

As a CTP participant, you will be paired up with a teammate. Teams will consist of one teen and one adult. The goal is for each team to participate in a 2-day field workshop and then carry out a conservation project together. We will take into account the following to help determine teams: (1) where you live and which workshop you can attend, (2) your interests and (3) your time availability. To help us match participants and apply to the CTP program, please submit the online application 6 weeks before the workshop date you'd like to attend.

Application deadline for each workshop location:

  • Kent: March 17, 2018
