This summer, members of Conservation Corps Newfoundland and Labrador’s Green Team, Autumn Lambert and Colby Sharpe, in partnership with the Town of Carbonear are identifying and mapping historically significant “cart paths” around the community. The team has generated Story Maps using ARCGIS software of these cart paths, as well as trails and other areas of interest in Carbonear.

Conservation Corps Newfoundland and Labrador is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to providing youth with training and employment in environmental and cultural heritage. One of their many programs, the Green Team Program offers youth meaningful employment opportunities in a supportive team setting. Green Teams focus on local environmental and cultural projects developed in partnership with communities, organizations, and corporate partners.
