NPS Biodiversity Youth Ambassadors
The mission of the NPS Biodiversity Youth Ambassador Program is to cultivate youth leadership that inspires the next generation of stewards in our schools and communities.
The National Park Service began the Biodiversity Youth Ambassador program to engage youth in science activities in the parks and gain their help in spreading in biodiversity awareness among their peers and in their home communities.
An Ambassador is selected by the host park of the annual NPS/National Geographic Society BioBlitzes and then becomes an official “Volunteers-in-Parks.” The Biodiversity Youth Ambassador program is coordinated by the National Park Service, with support from each Ambassador’s host park, family, and educational mentors.
Keep up with the Biodiversity Youth Ambassadors as they explore the natural wonders of our parks in Episode 1 of Outside Science (inside parks) found on the Explore Nature Facebook page.
