Volunteer Summer 2012

LEAF Interns

Three teens from the Environmental Charter School in Los Angeles spent a month working in Montana's Centennial Valley. The young men were part of the Conservancy's Leaders in Environmental Action for the Future (LEAF). The three helped our science and stewardship staff with stream and forest restoration projects that will benefit the valley's remarkable wildlife. They collected plants and insects, froze their hands doing important stream surveys, and removed several miles of nasty, barbed wire fence that presented a big hazard for young deer and elk as well as Greater Sage-grouse. The remote valley is a long way from the excitement and hustle of urban, southern California...but these great guys were up for the challenge! Check out their victories  (pdf)
