Learn More About programs will rejuvenate the conservation movement by ensuring that people from all ethnicities and socio-economic backgrounds care for and protect the natural environment. Youth participants will deepen their love of nature exploration and develop appreciation and respect for the variety of ways nature impacts their lives. Youth will continue to commune with nature for the rest of their lives and recommend that others join them in their adventures. The increased exposure to nature will benefit participants’ long-term mental, physical and spiritual health. By providing opportunities that have historically been denied to them, youth of color will be empowered to become active in their communities as stewards and advocates. Some youth will be inspired to pursue careers in the environmentally.
