Pay It Forward

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




This past summer, I attended the Pennsylvania Drummers field school where I was educated about the ruffed grouse and its habitat. The field school provides an unimaginable experience filled with fun and learning. My favorite experience at the school was watching hunting dogs – not only were they cute, but I saw so many things at the Academy that I’ve never seen before like a hunting dog in action. We were taught skills daily on leadership and communication to make us better members of our community. The moments and skills gained from this academy will always be useful to help me be the best person I can be.

As a scholarship recipient, I would like to thank those who participated in Pay It Forward to allow me to attend this school. It is my honor to give back to the school and allow more people to experience what I did. No one should ever be hindered from learning because of cost.

Thank you for helping me in Paying it Forward!  – Nina
