Keep Pinellas Beautiful: FREE Workshops for Teens

Keep Pinellas Beautiful is offering its summer workshop series for the third year in a row!

They will hold three FREE week-long Youth Environmental Leadership Programs for students in grades 9-12 to participate in hands-on skill-building activities. Enrollment in the first week’s program is already full; however, two additional Youth Environmental Leadership programs will take place from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. during the week of July 16-20 at Brooker Creek Preserve and during the week of July 30-August 3 at Boyd Hill Nature Preserve.

Students in these programs will gain an understanding of environmental issues, develop skills to inspire others through leadership and participate in hands-on activities including cleanups and canoeing. In addition to the experience gained, these programs will serve as a great opportunity to receive community service or Bright Futures Scholarship hours. To register, go to
