Youth Pulling Together Events: 
  During a Youth Pulling Together event, a group of youth volunteers uses hand tools to remove an invasive plant infestation in their community. Participants receive hands-on learning experiences on the impacts invasive plants can have on ecosystems and economies. In addition, they learn about plant ecology, proper removal and disposal techniques. These events are highly regarded and a fun way to develop environmental ambassadors.  More Info
