Youth and Ecological Restoration Program

Helping vulnerable youth build healthy community relationships with both the human and natural worlds.

Through restoring local watersheds with community members,
youth gain a sense of worth, belonging and place.

 

Youth work with community members to restore the health of our local watersheds, building healthy relationships with both the human and natural worlds. They are required to give oral presentations about their YER experience on completion of the program. Community Partnerships have increased to 136 (from July 2004 to August 2014).
