Pay It Forward

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


Goal Update:  $100 of $500 raised !

After attending Wildlife Leadership Academy, I feel like I’ve gained so much confidence and insight to go out and make a difference in the world! The information and skills I learned at this week-long camp changed my life. I loved being able to connect with so many like minded people about conservation. Meeting experts and engaging in the multitude of hands on activities was truly a unique and special experience. One of my favorite activities was assessing a habitat to see if it would be suitable for Ruffed Grouse. It was a great way to see first hand what aspects of an area make a good habitat or need improvement.

If it had not been for the students and donors that Paid It Forward in previous years, I would not have been able to attend this camp! I am so grateful for the opportunity and would love to help give back so that others can experience it to.

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

Below is a slide show of some of my favorite parts of field school!

  • The wonderful PA drummers students.
  • Leading my team in a Wildlife Leadership Academy cadence.
  • My team dissecting a Ruffed Grouse to learn about anatomy
  • Examining a Ruffed Grouse wing to determine the sex and age.
