LWF Announces 2021 Conservation Leadership Corps Students

Louisiana Wildlife Federation is excited to announce this year’s cohort for its Edgar Veillon Conservation Leadership Corps, a leadership development program that provides expert training for future conservation leaders. The first meeting will take place later this month.

Training will be provided by current and former natural resource professionals in the public, non-profit and private sectors. Students will be presented with real-world issues and experience. This year’s conservation focus is Trash Pollution in Louisiana Waterways. Through the integration of presentations, case studies, and collaborative activities, students will increase their knowledge of conservation policy and build skills in leadership and advocacy.

Due to safety concerns related to COVID-19, this year’s cohort will meet online with the possibility of an optional socially-distanced group activity in the spring. Training will take place during one weekend each month in January, February, March, and April 2021.
