The Youth Forest Stewards (YFS) is a program with Friends of the Dillon Ranger District (FDRD) that brings together high school aged students for a summer of forest stewardship!
Stewards will participate in a diverse array of volunteer projects throughout the months of May-September. Projects can include trail construction, fish surveys, wildlife habitat restoration and more! The YFS program ends with students planning, promoting, and leading their very own volunteer project in September.
During the summer, students not only build long-lasting friendships but also develop meaningful skills and connections in natural resource fields. Additionally, by participating as a Youth Forest Steward students become eligible to apply for FDRD’s $2,000.00 college scholarship!
