The Berks County Conservation District is offering this program to Berks County high school students. This program is offered to all high school students in public, private, online and/or home schools. All students and/or parents-guardians are responsible for their own transportation to the program locations. Also, students are responsible for supplying their own lunches/dietary needs for each day. The Conservation Leadership Program is modeled after a local conservationist named Don Hartman and strives to continue his conservation legacy.
