YOUTH CORPS PROGRAMS
We have a number of projects and activities related to preserving history and the environment, as well as fostering community relations. Here are just a few!
Miller’s Assistant at The Stony Brook Grist Mill: The Youth Corps assists the miller at the grist mill. Duties include running the Grist Mill Gift Shop
Spartina Planting: The Youth Corps members create wildlife habitats by planting spartina grass at West Meadow Creek at the Ward Melville Heritage Organization’s 88-acre wetland preserve.
Pepperweed Removal: The Youth Corps help preserve the shoreline of WMHO’s West Meadow Wetlands by helping to pull out the invasive pepperweed afflicting the area.
The Santa Fund: Every year the Youth Corps help raise money that provides food and clothing to those in need.
