Stewards of Syracuse
20 teens pitch in to clean up, build trails and plant gardens
"Syracuse parks will be a little cleaner this summer with a group of city school district students pitching in to help clean them up. 20 students, 14 and 15 years old, have been hired as part of the Stewards of Syracuse program. The students earn minimum wage and work 25 hours a week cleaning up trash, building trails, and planting gardens. They also learn about nature in an urban environment. The program lasts 4-weeks. It's a partnership between SUNY-ESF Outreach, CNY Works, and the Syracuse Department of Parks and Recreation."
