91 | Cultivating a Grass-Roots Approach to Conservation with Curt Collier & Lucy Crespo

Groundwork USA shares our mission to move youth from the classroom to the forest, learning and thriving in the great outdoors.

Today, Curt Collier and Lucy Crespo talk about how they’re combating environmental and socio-cultural barriers to getting kids outdoors, to make the mountains mainstream for urban youth.

We discuss the cultural and generational shifts towards environmentalism, effective community engagement, past project highlights, and the different ways our teachers can integrate our great national parks into the national curriculum.

We unbox:

  • Integrating the urban community with conservation
  • Diversifying access to conservation projects
  • Convincing youth to participate.
  • Different ways to join the conservation movement
