EDUCATION

A CORE VALUE OF OUR MISSION

In addition to our signature education programs, Growing Entrepreneurs and Schooner Camp, we offer field trips and guided nature walks through our preserves to introduce the public to the abundance of nature in our city and and reinforce the importance of conservation in urban areas. 

Contact info@newhavenlandtrust.org for more information regarding educational opportunities in our preserves!

GROWING ENTREPRENEURS

This program works with New Haven high school students to develop small-business ventures with a positive impact on the environment and the New Haven community. As employees of the Land Trust, they learn skills in agriculture and carpentry working on projects at community gardens. The program is designed to strengthen professional skills, entrepreneurship, understanding of environmental issues, gardening and carpentry skills, and character development - preparing them for secondary education, prospective jobs, and a future of environmental stewardship!
