Selected individuals will tour the core property of Lula Lake Land Trust in addition to on-site visits with other conservation partners, such as Tennessee River Gorge Trust and Lookout Mountain Conservancy, to better understand how conservation organizations work together. Hubbard, a fundraising expert, will also provide experiences in the fields of fundraising and marketing that will directly tie into conservation and the nonprofit sector.
"It is our duty to preserve the wonders around us," Hubbard states. "Both the engagement of young professionals and the teaching of conservation initiatives are important. The future of conservation relies on choices made today. This comprehensive program is a great resume builder for those looking to gain experience in the environmental or nonprofit field; I’m excited to lead it. Together, we will work toward a better understanding of conservation. I can guarantee it will be eye-opening."
The Conservation Ambassador Program is now open for young professionals to apply. Space is limited and only a select number of applicants will be chosen. Interested parties should send resumes to firstname.lastname@example.org by April 13.
