Youth complete spring term with service projects

To culminate their 11-week service term, participants in the Youth Outdoors program design and implement service projects in communities where they serve. On May 30, 10 youth crews spread out across Minneapolis, Saint Paul and Ramsey County to prep and plant gardens and an orchard; build and install shelters for birds, bees, bats and squirrels; and volunteer at a garden nursery and a bike shop.
