Youth Engagement Program

  • YEP is a program for any youth entering 9th – 12th grade in the fall of 2019 who have a desire for gaining knowledge in the conservation field.  YEP will offer youth a unique environment to learn from professionals in their respective fields, have fun and learn about conservation in our community.  Como asks that youth who join YEP come with an open mind and the desire to be engaged.  Youth who sign up for the program will be considered volunteers of Como Park Zoo and Conservatory.  Hours participating in the program can be used at volunteer hours for other organizations such as school requirements.  This program is FREE to participating youth as costs are covered by the Clean Water Land and Legacy Amendment Grant.
