This morning, youths ages 12-17 are expected to gather at Garlo Heritage Nature Preserve to begin a weeklong Working for Wildlife Camp.
From 9 a.m. to noon each day, the young people are to complete a wildlife project at a different county park. The projects could include trail maintenance, gardening or habitat restoration.
That sounds like a great idea. We can't help but wonder how not-so-young folks would respond to a similar effort. After all, why should the youths have to do all the work?
So let us know. We'll post this question online, and give those who respond a choice of times of day they would be able to meet at the parks and pitch in, too.
