High School Summer Crew Jobs Program
Our Summer Crew program provides jobs for high school students to serve as caretakers for D.C.’s trees in the summer. General responsibilities include watering, weeding and mulching trees. Crew members work 35 hours per week at $9 per hour and travel to worksites by truck and bicycle teams under adult supervision.
The 2013 Summer Crew session will run from June 27 to August 9. Applications must be completed and submitted online by May 18.
TreeWise Summer Youth Education Program
TreeWise is our nature-and place-based summer education program developed to get youth ages six to 10 outdoors and foster appreciation and understanding of trees through fun, hands-on activities.
Summer 2013 TreeWise sessions will run from June 24 to August 9. During the first four weeks of the program, TreeWise counselors will travel to host sites located within 25 miles of Casey Trees’ headquarters in Washington, D.C. The remaining sessions will be held at the U.S. National Arboretum.
