LOCK HAVEN, Pa. -The Wildlife Leadership Academy is currently seeking referrals of motivated students ages 14 to 17 to become Certified Conservation Ambassadors.
Nominated students should have an interest in wildlife and/or fisheries conservation.
Applicants may be nominated by an adult who knows them well; but is not a relative. Accepted nominees will become certified through a five-day residential summer field school which focuses on a particular wildlife species, including white-tailed deer, bass, brook trout, turkey, and bear.
As Conservation Ambassadors, students can receive a letter of a recommendation for college applications; certification of community service work, and a certificate designating them as Conservation Ambassadors.
Students are also eligible to apply for three college credits through Cedar Crest College, return to the Academy tuition-free the following year, compete for college scholarships, and join an Academy Alumni Network of wildlife, fisheries, and conservation professionals.
For more information, contact Youth/Alumni Outreach Manager, Katie Cassidy at (570) 939-5109.
