Pay It Forward
Hi, my name is Caroline Vancura and I am a Conservation Ambassador and want to Pay It Forward to the Next Generation of Conservation Leaders!
MY FUNDRAISING GOAL – $750
MY WLA STORY + WHY I WANT TO PAY IT FORWARD
My favorite part of participating in the Drummers field school was all the intensified learning opportunities. There, I learned more than I’ve ever learned before – more than just the basics. The most interesting thing I learned was about habitats. The instructors taught us that young growth forests are essential to ruffed grouse as well as a variety of other species, which I thought was interesting because I’ve always heard that leaving forests be was the best way to care for them. Wildlife Leadership Academy (WLA) doesn’t just focus on the wildlife part; they also teach about and increase our leadership skills. I learned that teamwork is arguably the most important part of being a leader; before, I knew it was important, but WLA really stressed learning about and participating in teamwork as part of leadership.
I want to pay it forward because I believe WLA really helped me in my chosen path and taught me more than I knew it was going to. I want to help others join so that they can experience this as well. Also, I’m kind of expected to pay it forward because I got a scholarship to get in :).
Thank you for helping me in Paying it Forward! ~ Caroline
