Little Brook Youth Corps

Empowering Lake City youth to take an active role in restoring Little Brook, a degraded creek that runs into the Thornton Creek Watershed, while gaining job skills and improving the community

Project Description

The Little Brook Youth Corps project at Little Brook Park will deliver multiple environmental, economic and social benefits for Lake City, and especially for young people, low-income immigrant families, and other traditionally marginalized populations. The project will increase community awareness of Little Brook Creek and the Thornton Creek watershed and the need and opportunity for environmental restoration and neighborhood beautification. A beautified and restored open space along the neglected and polluted Little Brook Creek will create a stronger sense of place in a neighborhood where residents have historically lacked community cohesion and will improve water quality and habitat.
