Central Indiana Chapter Education Program
It is important to recruit and develop conservation leaders for the future. Our Chapter supports the overall Pheasant Forever dedication to the No Child Left Indoors Initiative. We need to get kids outdoors to learn about natural resources firsthand.
The Chapter sends area youth to the Karl E. Kelly Memorial Youth Camp for a week-long educational experience each June. The Camp educates youth about the concervation of natural resources by offereing certified Outdoor Education programs by the Indiana DNR Law Enforcement Division. The kids are taught the appreciation of natural resources. In addition, the Camp cultivates respect for the Indiana Conservation Officers.
School Yard Habitat Program
School yard habitat programs help the next
generation of conservationists develop a respect and appreciation for
the land. Our chapter chapters supports youth grassland bird
habitat and pollinator habitat projects. These habitats not only
benefit the birds, butterflies, and bees, but they provide education
opportunities for local youth and community groups.
The Leopold Education Project (LEP) is an environmental education program based on the classic writings of the renowned conservationist, Aldo Leopold. The LEP curriculum fosters a positive relationship between our younger generations and the soil, water, plants, and animals and provides leadership in the effort to conserve and protect the earth's natural resources.
