High school students: Join our Student Conservation Leaders summer program!
Participants will paddle, fish, hike, wade, seine, sample, observe and engage in restoration activities in our Ohio River Watershed, while developing their abilities in leadership, stewardship, and conservation.
Each day of these one-week sessions begins and ends at a local river park. From there, participants will adventure up and down the waterway to engage in hands-on ecological investigations, activities, and empowering conversations. Students will experience what it takes to be an environmental steward and discover ways to lead their school and community toward environmental solutions.
This 5-day long course is offered for two different weeks this summer at two different locations. The below locations will be our jumping-off point each day. Participants will begin and end each day at these sites. We will travel together as a group to different locations across the greater Cincinnati area each day.
- June 12-16, 9:30 am-3:00 pm: Nisbet Park ( Loveland, OH)
- June 26-30, 9:30 am-3:00 pm: Washington Park (OTR, Cincinnati, OH)
- Student applicants must be entering 10th – 12th grades for the 2023-2024 school year.
