Join Conservation Legacy!

Exciting, challenging, rewarding—there is no one word to describe participating in a Conservation Legacy Program.

COVID-19 Update: Dear Applicants and Potential Participants,

Our crews and individual placements have always been the foundation and driving force of this organization. The safety of our participants has always been our utmost priority. Since the beginning of the COVID-19 situation, we have activated an Incident Response Team and are working around the clock to monitor and manage the effects of the outbreak. Conservation Legacy and its programs are strictly following guidelines provided by the Center for Disease Control (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO) and local public health agencies. If you have questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to your program or recruitment staff.

As conditions change, Conservation Legacy policies will evolve—we will post our most recent updates on our website and via social media. Please stay connected for the most up to date information.

We urge everyone to follow CDC and WHO protocols to limit the spread of the virus. We hope that you and your families are well.

In Service,

Conservation Legacy and Program Staff
