Conservation Leadership School
Conservation Leadership School (CLS) is a one-week residential program for high school students (ages 14-18) to learn about the world around them through exploration and hands-on activities. It's your ideal school, where the classroom includes more than 700 acres of forest, fields, wetlands, and streams...where learning about the environment goes hand-in-hand with having fun, meeting new friends, and learning leadership skills
Week 1: June 25-July 1, 2017
Week 2: July 9-15, 2017
CLS students will work with faculty and staff from Penn State's Department of Ecosystem Science and Management, and representatives from the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission, the Pennsylvania Game Commission, and many noted conservation organizations.
The summer 2017 CLS program will focus on "the who, where, when, what, and how of natural resource management and conservation in Pennsylvania."
Hands-on activities include:
- aquatic habitat enhancement
- home water analysis
- team building ropes and challenge courses
- PA Game Commission Hunter/Trapper Education for those who wish to participate
