Earlier this month, eight high school students from Tucson, Arizona decided not to vacation or take it easy on their fall break. Instead, they participated in the second iteration of the Earth Conservation Internship on the Coronado National Forest. The week was a culmination of a truly collaborative effort between many organizations including the National Forest Foundation, Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, U.S. Forest Service, Arizona Conservation Corps, Youth Career Connect and Pima County One Stop.
