The Youth in Restoration Program (YIR) was developed to expose high school students to the processes involved in land management. YIR provides youth career mentorship and on the ground experience in natural resource/conservation work while building and strenthening partnerships within a diverse mix of stewardship and management organizations.
The extensive parnerships involved in making this program successful enable the YIR to work with a variety of experts within different levels of land management. The youth crew is involved with; weed management professionals from state and federal agencies, conservation managers from the City and the University, botonist and range technicians from BLM, DNRC and Forest Service, local ranchers and land stewards from non-profit partners. The partnerships between state, federal and private agencies will ensure a variety of land-use/conservation/restoration work experience for the youth crew and the collaboration is beneficial for all.
