We work in the Forest Park waterways and the surrounding area maintaining, improving, and restoring Missouri’s native species while eliminating invasive species. Nature Works is a teen youth program aimed towards giving students the opportunity to learn and better the environment.  We are a group of teenagers from the St. Louis metro area ranging from the ages of 16-18.

To better introduce ourselves, here is a list of some of our favorite things: 

  • Marsean likes basketball and gaming
  • Daijah and Aviana were not consulted for this list, but we will ask them what their favorite things are and update when we find out
  • Brogan likes puppies, snow cones and Napoleon Dynamite
  • Harry enjoys fine dining at exquisite establishments such as West End Wok
  • Drachen enjoys gaming and horticulture
  • Marcus does landscape design and DJs in his spare time
  • Rashaun loves listening to music
  • Riley chopped down a dead tree with a hammer in only 3 days
  • Kalyn likes hiking and being in her hammock
  • Rickell likes sitting down to a homestyle meal of mac n’ cheese

That is our whole crew! Thank you for reading — we will catch you later! In the meantime, you can read more about us at www.forestparkforever.org/natureworks
