Championing our nation's young people, communities and ecosystems
Today, our programs are growing faster than ever. With your help, we are introducing new people from all backgrounds to our diverse landscapes around the country. Individuals like Trinity Arreola, a member of the first-ever Deaf and Hard of Hearing trail crew in the Southeast. For Trinity, working to preserve and experience our trails is much more than just the physical grind and mental grit it takes to succeed in outdoor environments; “It’s also about learning respect and leadership and showing good work ethic. It’s about finding yourself. Finding your identity; who you are.”
We are implementing important projects in new and existing communities across the country including fire mitigation, invasive species eradication, trail maintenance, erosion control, scientific research and environmental interpretation. Each year Conservation Legacy’s programs and services impact over
- 2,200 youth, generating future leaders to protect, steward and advocate for our land
- 940 trails, increasing recreational access to public lands
- 28,000 acres of land through varying conservation efforts in all 50 US states
Together, we can make a difference!
