Multimedia - Park Stewardship Youth Programs
See highlights and listen to testimonials of two youth programs of the Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy: LINC and Restoration Youth Crew (RYC).
LINC: During this six week program, local high school students assist with service projects, attend leadership workshops, and take field trips to special park sites (like Alcatraz Island and Muir Woods). Projects and activities vary by week and include trail work, plant propagation, and habitat restoration. They also pack up for a four-day camping and service trip to Yosemite.
RYC: Also six weeks long, this program provides a combination of intensive service work and hands-on learning with a specific focus on ecology, restoration, and land management. To kick off the program, students participate in a three day backpacking adventure.
