GENOA, Nev. (MyNews4.com & KRNV) -- A few young people had a chance to turn off their phones and get in touch with the great outdoors for a whole month.
It was part of the Nature Conservancy's Leaders in Environmental Action for the Future program. Four teens from California traded in their beach towels and flip flops for work boots and gloves.
They made hiking trails, carried out fish surveys and helped improve conditions at Gardnerville Elementary School. The interns worked around Independence Lake and the Nature Conservancy's River Fork Ranch.
