An event every day that begins at 9:00am, repeating until May 1, 2018
Hildene Youth Corps is a two-week summer program (July 9-20) for 8 highly motivated young people entering 7th or 8th grade. The team of students will have a unique opportunity to combine work and fun, while making a difference on the 412 acre Lincoln estate. The 2018 project will be to create a vernal pool boardwalk that will allow school groups and visitors to explore this unique and special habitat, without damaging the life that thrives there.
Registration is open now through May 1!
Please call (802) 362-1788 or visit www.hildene.org for an application.
More Info: Youth Corps members spend their mornings working as a team to complete the boardwalk and their afternoons investigating the diverse ecology of Hildene. But it’s “not all work and no fun,” as they will also be making yogurt from goat’s milk, building a birdhouse, felting, lending a helping hand at Dene Farm and exploring the greenhouse. Over the course of the two weeks, Youth Corps members will also learn about nonprofits that are doing important conservation and ecology work because at the end of the two-week session each will be awarded $50 to donate to one of these organizations.
