About Us Youth in Action Connect with Us

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is committed to conserving natural resources, and we believe that one of the key components to conservation is working with you, the next generation of land and wildlife stewards. We seek to engage and work with you through interpretation, education, and employment on and around Service field offices. We offer a variety of programs that connect families and people of all ages to the outdoors and provide enriching and resume building job opportunities for young people.
