Every month, our ITE field team guides local youth, ages 14-20, on outdoor adventures called EcoPrograms. Outdoor adventures include nature walking, birdwatching, hiking, river walking, campouts, and more. Once youth participate in 1 EcoProgram, they become eligible to join our EcoNetwork of 45 youth and 200+ young alumni.

  • Opportunity to hang out in nature and explore with teens from 10+ high schools
  • No-cost programs (sponsored by our partners)
  • Free transportation provided from ITE Urban Field Station (738 N. 5th Ave., #101 in the Historic Y)
