Program Highlight- Conservation Leadership Corps

The Minnesota Conservation Federations Conservation Leadership Corps (CLC) is an exciting and engaging hands on experience that introduces participants to hunting, fishing, and other outdoor opportunities. In addition to these outdoor experiences participants are introduced to conservation leadership, communication, and policy concepts from conservation professionals. 

Participants in the program are college students who have an interest in a natural resources major or career but have not had the chance to take part in fishing or hunting activities. Taking part in the CLC provides them with new experiences and information that will help to broaden their understanding of conservation and its connection to those who fish, hunt, and trap.

We strive to create a program that is welcoming and understanding of the backgrounds and values or our participants.

Students accepted into the program must

-be enrolled in a college our university in Minnesota and majoring in a natural resources related field.

-have an interest in, but have not had the chance to experience hunting, fishing, or trapping.

-be open to new experiences, people, and ideas.
