UCONN Natural Resources Conservation Academy
Conservation Training Partnerships

Did you have the chance at the 2018 Connecticut Land Conservation Conference to meet the students and see the projects and posters coming out of UCONN’s Natural Resources Conservation Academy (NRCA) program? Wow! 

These teams of students and adults were participants of the NRCA Conservation Training Partnerships (CTP) and we were just thrilled that they spent the day with us to share all that they accomplished together.

If a member of your land trust, conservation commission, or other community volunteer is interested in working with high school students as part of the CTP, there is still time to learn more and sign-up!

CTP is a great way to inspire the next generation of conservationists and benefit your community by working together to address local environmental issues.

And it’s free! ... How’s that for an opportunity to make a difference?
