How to Get Involved


It doesn't matter if you are an individual, small business owner, or CEO of a multinational corporation; no one is too small or too big to help educate students to become the environmental leaders of tomorrow. As a non-profit 501c3, all donations whether monetary or otherwise are tax deductible. Please contact us via email or using the contact link above if you are interested in donating to help conserve the environment.


Build a network of community support that can provide sustainable funding resources for students to participate in our program.


We are working to provide local high school students with the experience and opportunities that will allow them to become the next generation of conservation leaders.



By providing corporate investment in our youth, we will be able to create wilderness and biodiversity conservation leaders for the future of our world.
