Three chances for teens to give back to the community this month

July 9, 2023 02:44 AM

FRESH Crew is a nature work club for teens, grades 6 to 12.

FRESH Crew meets weekly 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 must have a signed waiver by a guardian over the age of 18 - digital versions available by email.

No prior registration or experience is required! 

Call 217-384-4062 or email Chelsea Prahl at for more information.
