For the past 7 years, UConn’s Natural Resources Conservation Academy (NRCA) team has been empowering teens, adult volunteers, undergraduate & graduate students, and teachers statewide by providing professional development & leadership opportunities and supporting participant-led community conservation efforts. Collectively, 232 community conservation projects have been carried out by NRCA teen-adult teams, contributing environmental solutions and excellence in conservation in communities all across the state.
