Shaping Tomorrow’s Leaders in Environmental Conservation

2015 Fellows. Photo by Paula Combs

This summer marks our ninth Summer Fellowship Program, an annual seven-week educationalprogram for college students and recent graduates. The fellowship combines classroom discussions, field trips, hands-on activities and collaborative practicums. Through this experience, the fellows gain practical knowledge and skills necessary to successfully transition into careers in conservation, urban planning, agriculture, public policy and other related fields. After a competitive selection process, we are pleased to announce this year’s fellows.
