Pay It Forward

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


Goal update: $518.50 raised!


Hi, I’m Laurie, and my experience at the Wildlife Leadership Academy was amazing. It provided me with a network of people with the same interests as me, where we all support and help each other. I have also been shown a path to my future career area and I am so glad that the WLA pointed me there. At WLA I was able to be a leader, and that was such a great feeling. I made friends and memories that will last a lifetime at the Wildlife Leadership Academy.

I would like to Pay It Forward to the next class of WLA students because WLA gave me such an amazing, educational, life-changing experience, that I want the next class of students to go home feeling as wonderful as I did. I want the next class of WLA students to feel that wonderful for the rest of their lives. That wonderful feeling will help them reach for greatness, and achievement, and positive change.

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

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

  • This a photo I took while on my way to a shooting competition with my dad. I have found that working hard to get the perfect photo for my outreach can be very rewarding!
  • Getting out in the woods and being able to observe the world around me is a wonderful feeling. Even if I don't come home with the biggest buck or turkey, going out to the woods is rewarding on its own.
  • Hunting with my dad is one of my favorite things to do.
  • When coming home from the Alumni Reunion for WLA my family and I found this gorgeous waterfall.
  • Anytime I am outside now, I take a lot of photos to share with WLA.
