About

Our Nature Guardians Youth Program brings youth together through nature-based experiences and leadership opportunities to inspire and grow the next generation of conservation leaders in Ontario.

We aim to support high-school aged youth by:

  • Offering hands-on opportunities for meaningful engagement and community involvement through outdoor events and campaigns
  • Developing the knowledge, tools and networks youth need to create lasting, positive change through conservation action
  • Providing insight on volunteer, education and career opportunities to help youth grow the skills, experience, and confidence needed to make a difference
