The Bainbridge Island Land Trust is once again hiring a dedicated crew of teens aged 15 and older to work on conservation lands this summer. The Land Trust teen conservation crew will perform valuable conservation work, such as invasive plant removal, property clean up, and other stewardship items on island conservation lands during 14 days this summer.
The program offers high school students a unique opportunity to earn money while making a noticeable difference in the health of our Island ecosystems, and learn about the work of the Land Trust.
The Bainbridge Island Land Trust sessions will be:
June 22 (Thursday) 9:00 am - 2:30 pm
June 23 (Friday) 9:00 am - 2:30 pm

July 19, 20, 21 (Wednesday/Thursday/Friday) 9:00 am - 2:30 pm
A commitment to work all days is highly preferred. Rate of pay for crew members will be $11/hr. Work is out-of-doors. Prior experience working out of doors is preferred. Transportation to and from work sites is the responsibility of the crew member. Crew members will receive 5 hours of pay each day, and a 30 minute unpaid lunch break.
If you are a teen, aged 15 and older interested in this job opportunity, please contact Sinclair Ball
at the Land Trust (206) 842-1216.
We have a limited number of spots available, and our goal is to fill our crew by March 31st so please apply early. Application materials will be provided upon initial screening. A short after-school or evening orientation meeting will occur this spring in which all application materials will be collected and we will get to know each other.
Due to the limited number of Land Trust crew member slots, if you are not hired by the Land Trust, we encourage you to contact Emily Helgeson
at the Bainbridge Island Metropolitan Park and Recreation District who hosts the Student Conservation Corps program.
