NFWF: Developing the Next Generation of Conservationists
December 15, 2015
Deadline for applications for the NATIONAL FISH and WILDLIFE FOUNDATION: DEVELOPING the NEXT GENERATION of CONSERVATIONISTS to connect youth to the outdoors by providing support for conservation employment programs. This initiative brings together public and private partners to support those organizations that are developing innovative conservation job opportunities for youth (aged 16-25 years old) on public lands. These job opportunities, in turn, expose young people, particularly urban, tribal, and minority youth, to the natural world and career opportunities available in conservation. Project work funded through this program is restricted to habitat and species restoration projects that directly benefit the Bureau of Land Management, the Bureau of Reclamation, or U.S. Forest Service facilities, lands, programs, or missions. Eligible applicants include nonprofit organizations, state and local governments, educational institutions, and Indian tribes. Visit the NFWF website to review the funding guidelines.
