Want to help create a better world?  We thought so!

Through the Youth Engagement Program, high school-aged youth utilize their strengths to identify and address the unique conservation needs within their community.  YEP teams develop projects that inspire others to take action for a better world.

We are now accepting APPLICATIONS for the 2017-2018 school year. Click HERE for the Adult Mentor Letter of Understanding.
