Master Cooperative Agreement Number P15AC00031 was entered into by and between the Department of the Interior, National Park Service, (NPS), and The Student Conservation Association (SCA) to build the next generation of conservation leaders and inspire lifelong stewardship of our environment and communities
by engaging young people in hands-on service to the land through service opportunities, outdoor skills, and leadership training.
This project will provide youth skill and job development programs to address cyclic and deferred maintenance tasks through cooperative efforts with New York City parks in cultural and natural resource conservation.
These projects introduce youth participants to trail development and maintenance, historic, cultural and native habitat restoration and rehabilitation.
The resource stewardship project accomplishments and youth engagement occurring throughout the National parks of New Harbor will be shared with the public through park publications, newsletters, social media, and project completion reports
