Work, Learn, Earn—Team Members Trade SWEAT for Environmental Education.

SWEAT members make improvements to Warner Parks’ hiking trails, organic gardens, footbridges, landscaping, and facilities. In return, they gain valuable knowledge and team-building experience in organic gardening methods, trail maintenance techniques, use of landscaping tools, the natural history of native plants and animals, impact of invasive species, and natural area management.
