The next generation of forest ambassadors has arrived! 

Three teens in the forest, text reads NextGen Forest Ambassadors

30 ambassadors ages 14-16 have been selected to participate in two nights of EXPERT-LED CAMPING and a 1-night excursion to the Len Foote Hike Inn - a rustic, backcountry lodge accessed by a 5-mile guided hike through CHATTAHOOCHEE NATIONAL FOREST in North Georgia.

This April they'll be introduced to OUTDOOR STEWARDSHIP and receive HANDS-ON TRAINING to help them CONNECT AND INSPIRE others.

Camping and hiking FUN round out with a YOUTH SUMMIT where they will lend their POWERFUL VOICES to find ways to connect other young people to the public lands that BELONG TO ALL OF US.

They've committed to 20 hours of creatively SHARING their outdoor STEWARDSHIP EXPERIENCES and UNIQUE PERSPECTIVES, and we'll be documenting those here!

Deadline to apply:  The deadline for 2019 has passed. Stay tuned for future opportunities!
