Do you love the outdoors? Are you concerned about nature and taking care of our natural resources? Are you interested in learning more about plants, animals, trees and the planet’s well-being? In other words, is caring about the environment in your nature?

If you are a rising 9th or 10th grader with a passion for your environment and a desire to get involved, the Center for Conservation Leadership (CCL) can help prepare you to make a difference in our future. CCL’s programs will help you develop a practical understanding of conservation—the careful use and protection of river, forests and other natural resources. Equally important, you will learn how to become a steward of the environment, how to assume responsibility, to take action personally and to lead others in making a positive impact on the environment.

CCL can help you contribute to a better future for yourself, for your community and for the entire planet. So take a look around. Enjoy your stay. Come back often. And take part.

CCL programs include the Certificate Program, targeted to students completing 8th and 9th grades and a High School Internship Program for those who complete the Certificate Program.

"CCL was a strength building experience. We all learned many new things: the program made us think differently about the environment."
