July Feature - Empower Conservation Leaders

With the large majority of U.S. citizens living in urban areas, children may not have early outdoor experiences that draw them to a career in natural resources or conservation. For college students, the diversity of options available for doing conservation work may be overwhelming. Mentors who can spark a second grader’s curiosity in the backyard ecosystem or discuss career goals with a college junior can be invaluable in nurturing tomorrow’s conservation leaders. This month, we feature four Forest Service employees who go the extra mile to connect with young people – from elementary school children to graduate students – and open the door to the wonder and importance of working to sustain our natural ecosystems.
