BCCDKY Junior Board

BCCDKY Junior Board members are high school volunteers who help the BCCDKY create and implement local conservation projects.

Our Junior Board Members participate in real-world conservation work, gain naturalist skills, and get experience running professional meetings and working with a team to develop new projects.

Meetings take place monthly during the school year.

2021/2022 projects:

  • Planting trees at Reforest NKY annual event
  • Reducing waste at the Hazardous Household Waste annual event
  • Volunteering at The Boone Conservancy's annual fundraiser
  • Turning recycled Christmas trees into fish habitat at Conservancy Park
  • Improving bank stability at Camp Ernst Lake
