From one of our Alumnus about the impact the Academy had on them:

I am more aware of conservation and how to magnify my efforts towards it. I was also exposed to a fantastic network of organizations dedicated to this purpose. Learning at this age in my life, rather than later, impacted me greatly in how I think about the environment and its inhabitants, and I would fully recommend the program to other young outdoor enthusiasts!
