Conservation Legacy engages over 2,000 youth, young adults and veterans each year, contributing millions of hours of service to public lands.
Conservation Legacy programs engage participants on diverse conservation and community service projects that provide opportunities for personal and professional development and meet the high priority needs of public land managers and community partners.
Our programming is replicable and adaptable, allowing the organization and programs to stay nimble and localize impact while still tapping into the strength of scale as a national nonprofit.
