  • Watching the students at the camp learn and grow together over the course of the week was awesome to see. I wish I would have had the opportunity to be a part of a program like this when I was in high school.

  • As an Adult Mentor, I get to see the field school through the eyes of the students in what they are learning. This is a great program for high school students who may be interested in a conservation oriented career.

    Danae, Adult Mentor

  • It was an extra-ordinary experience that provided me with sound lessons and educational information that I will be passing on to my students. My sincerest hope is to be able to volunteer again for another week.
