Immersion Programs

Joshua’s Trust partners with EASTCONN, a public, nonprofit, Regional Educational Service Center, to provide a formative field
experience over six to seven summer weeks building and maintaining trails, learning about invasives and how to remove them, and building/repairing bridges and boardwalks.

The students are paid by Eastern Connecticut Workforce Board (ECWB) and work side-by-side with land trust staff and mentors.
