Hi, my name is Emma Coulter and I am a Conservation Ambassador and want to Pay It Forward to the Next Generation of Conservation Leaders!




As a Wildlife Leadership Academy Conservation Ambassador, I am just one of many local students working to better educate myself about our local environment and pass on that information in our local communities. Thanks to your support, I have been able to continue my volunteer work this past year. I also completed a seminar program over the summer and attended a fall program with wildlife experts from across the state. Beyond being out in nature, my favorite part of this year was being out in the community to share vital wildlife news about chronic wasting disease in deer, white-nosed syndrome in bats, habitat loss, awareness of invasive plants and insects, and how we can all work together to protect the future enjoyment of our woodlands and waterways. Please help ensure that WLA is able to continue to support students like me in becoming responsible stewards of our environment. Any contribution is tax-deductible and directly felt by WLA students.

The legacy of WLA stems from the past work of other students like me and from the support of people like you. I want to Pay It Forward to continue that legacy. I can see the impact of experienced and new environmentalists working together for a healthier place to recreate, fish, hunt, hike, photograph, camp, or whatever your great adventure in the outdoors might be!

Thank you for helping me in Paying it Forward!  ~ Emma

One way to open your eyes is to ask yourself, ‘What if I had never seen this before? What if I knew I would never see it again?
