The Trails Stewardship Team (TST) of Jeffco Open Space is a fun program that employs youth for trail maintenance and natural resource restoration of parks. TST promotes a positive work and stewardship ethic among team members while helping to maintain and improve natural surface trails, mitigate noxious weeds, and restore natural areas. TST will employ 40 youth this summer, placed into crews of 5 members, supervised by an adult Crew Leader. Join over 3,000 TST alumni for a program that has been happening since 1975!

Participants will work Tuesday through Thursday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. from June 22 through August 5. The wage for 2021 is $12.32/hr.

Hope to see you on the trails this summer!
