About CAP

NRCA's Conservation Ambassadors Program is great for high school students (grades 9 to 11) that are interested in the environment or science. Through a week-long field experience at UConn and an individual community conservation project, this program engages high school students in natural resource science and conservation biology in a fun and exciting way through experiential, place-based learning. This program was awarded the 2016 Maria Pirie Environmental Education Program Award from the New England Environmental Education Alliance.
