Youth Stewardship Day
Promoting environmental stewardship is one of CASA's defining objectives. That's where our Youth Stewardship Event comes in. This hands-on youth volunteer opportunity helps develop a sense of personal responsibility for our outdoor spaces in a whole new generation.
In 2016, 49 youth participants worked alongside their youth leaders and adult volunteers. Together, they collected over 500 pounds of trash from all over Mt. Lemmon. This year, we're looking to do even better!
In conjunction with National Public Lands Day, the 2017 CASA Youth Stewardship Event will commence on Saturday, September 30th. The event is only the beginning. Beyond the opportunity to help keep our mountain beautiful, each youth participant will receive a free indoor rock climbing pass via a generous donation from Rocks & Ropes, to either Rocks & Ropes or The BLOC. The pass, good for both the orientation class and gear rental, is an awesome way to introduce the world of climbing to these hard-working young people.
