Bringing Education and Adventure Together

Through in-depth, hands-on learning, the Conservation EdVenture team inspires students of all ages to take an active role in the conservation of our planet’s natural resources. It is our goal to provide students with a fun and safe environment to further their knowledge in the areas of biology, chemistry, earth science, engineering, fishing, hunting and survival.

Our Conservation EdVentures promote STREAM (science, technology, recreation, engineering, art and math) by building the next generation of scientists, conservationists and naturalists.
