Help us create the next generation of conservation leaders!
The Wildlife Leadership Academy is now accepting applications for the 2015 Field Schools, a five-day, residential camp for Pennsylvania students ages 14–17 and school teachers. This field school is a life changing week focusing on teaching the next generation how to conserve and protect our natural resources for years to come.
TEENS: Do you have a passion for conservation and the outdoors? Do you want to make a difference in your community? Then this the program for you – it is a unique and life changing experience. You will receive hands-on training in nature, interact directly with wildlife professionals, learn the newest research and technology in the field, discover the beauty of the outdoors, and develop key leadership skills. By the end of your five days at the Field School, you will be inspired and empowered—ready to begin your future as a conservation ambassador in your very own community.
