Investing in the Next Generation of Outdoor Stewards


36 votes so far

We’re committed to expanding access to inspirational places. So this year we’re investing $1M in the 21st Century Conservation Service Corps (21CSC). We will support projects in 19 national parks working with young people – including underserved high school and college students, inner-city youth and multicultural groups – to protect, restore and enhance national parks throughout the country.

21CSC National Parks

These young stewards will help revitalize some of the nation’s most iconic and inspiring places, building and maintaining trail access to help visitors go deeper.

The projects will give them experiences that can help them transform their own lives through education and employment. Creating a new generation of future conservation leaders. Who knows where their trails might lead?
