Generation Green is a Muir club sponsored by the U.S. Forest Service (USFS). Generation Green is part of the Southern California Consortium, a USFS outreach, education, and employment program that is committed to diversity and equity in the U.S. Forest Service and in America’s magnificent public lands.

During the school year, Generation Green engages in a variety outdoor education, recreation, and service activities: hiking, camping, kayaking, ecological restoration, trail construction, leadership development, community service, mentoring, and career exploration. During the summer, Generation Green partners with the Los Angeles County Dept. of Parks & Recreation to offer a six-week PAID internship program called Careers in Conservation.

Students are welcome to join Generation Green at any time; we’re always excited to have new members! The club meets in Ms. Lake’s room (G-226) every Wednesday at lunch. Students are also invited to visit our office (A-183, next to Mr. Watter’s room) to learn more about the program from LizBeth Williams, the U.S. Forest Service coordinator for Generation Green.
