Restoring Ecosystems, Educating Future Conservation Leaders

We believe that the some of the most effective ways to prepare youth to be future responsible land stewards is through active participation in restoration, monitoring, and conservation education.

Our new REEF (Restoring Ecosystems, Educating Future Conservation Leaders) education program makes this possible by providing students with opportunities to develop career skills, while helping SDCWC restore natural functions of land and waterways for the benefit of nature and humans.

REEF is an educational partnership to protect and restore local watersheds, promote environmental awareness, and provide conservation career development. Read more about this exciting program by clicking here.
