FRESH Crew Teen Nature Workdays

FRESH Crew is a nature work club for teens, grades 6 to 12. FRESH Crew meets once a month to remove invasive species, plant native plants, garden in community gardens, or harvest seeds. In addition, we host guest speakers, spend time in Urbana’s natural areas.

All are welcome! FRESH Crew helps members build connections with nature and their community, make new friends, and learn about the natural world. This program also provides hands-on experience for students interested in working in nature, such as at a National Park, in a research lab, or on a restoration crew.

Participants under 18 must have a signed waiver by a parent or guardian. No prior registration or experience is required! Call 217 384-4062 or email naturemailbox@urbanaparks.org for more information.
