Now Hiring Youth for PCSP Green Team

Each year, Conservation Corps Newfoundland and Labrador employs youth throughout the province on environmental and cultural projects. This year, the Town of Portugal Cove-St. Philip’s has been fortunate enough to have been selected to host another Green Team for the summer season.

To apply for the Green Team, youth must be between the ages of 16-30.

The Green Team will conduct assessment of local waterways to determine levels and sources of over enrichment and complete some remediation work to enhance spawning grounds and opportunities for brook trout in the Beachy Cove System.

The team will conduct sampling and evaluate levels of nitrate, phosphate, pH, dissolved oxygen, temperature and where possible relative flow rates. Vegetation will also be evaluated. The team will assist with identifying suitable sites for the installation of spawning gravel near test sites and conduct remediation activities as directed with the goal of enhancing hatch rates.
