The Wildlife Leadership Academy enriches Pennsylvania teens and empowers them to become certified Conservation Ambassadors through attending one of our 5-day residential summer field schools:  white-tailed deer, brook trout, ruffed grouse, black bear or bass.

Our students gain extensive knowledge about wildlife and conservation, leadership experience, and communication skills.

Do you know of a student who would benefit from our program?  Nominate them today!

Please consider helping us continue to build a network of inspired and dedicated young leaders for conservation to ensure a sustained wildlife legacy for future generations.

Our nomination process is currently closed for the season.  

If you would like to be notified when nominations are open for the 2017 field school season, please join our mailing list.  Thank you so much for your support!

  • Certification of community service work, and,
  • Certificates designating them as Conservation Ambassadors.

PLUS, Conservation Ambassadors are also eligible to:

We are looking for highly motivated students between the ages of 14 and 17 to join one of our 5-day residential summer wildlife/fisheries focused field schools to begin their journey to become Conservation Ambassadors.  Students should have demonstrated interest in the outdoors and in wildlife and/or fisheries conservation.

Thank you for supporting today’s youth in pursuing their passion for conservation and the outdoors!
