Youth Conservation Award

Youth Conservation Award - Connecting Youth with Nature

Youth Conservation Award patch.

The Heinz Refuge Youth Conservation Award was created to recognize efforts of all youth who seek to learn more about the importance of wildlife habitat and environmental stewardship during their refuge visit(s) and then use what they learn in their daily lives. Completion of the award requires seeing and experiencing the refuge first-hand, learning and applying knowledge obtained from refuge exhibits and brochures, and participating in refuge-based activities, service projects, etc. This is sponsored by Friends of Heinz Refuge.
