Polk County Conservation

Youth Corps

The Polk County Conservation Youth Corps gives teenagers opportunities to work in Iowa’s natural spaces while learning valuable professional and personal skills. Crews practice teamwork while completing conservation service projects like trail maintenance and invasive species removal. Corpsmembers leave with enhanced job skills, confidence as leaders, and greater environmental awareness.
