This year’s Conservation Award goes to Cameron County Outdoor Youth Activities, centered in Emporium, PA.
Cameron County Outdoor Youth Activities began in January 2011, but they have already made huge strides in their work to provide area youth with the opportunity and education to become more aware of the outdoor lifestyle and the benefits this can bring to them in their lives and personal growth. The long list of the programs that they have implemented in the area during the past several years is quite impressive. These programs include a wide variety of opportunities to expose youth to outdoor activities, skills, careers, many of which are conservation oriented.
This organization is exactly what is needed to help our youth become productive adults, leaders in our communities, and good stewards of our outdoor world. Therefore the Cameron County Outdoor Youth Activities is a perfect recipient for this year’s conservation award.
