BLM-California’s 2014 Public Lands Education Project
The Public Lands Education Project is a collaborative effort involving the BLM, U.S. Forest Service, National Park Service and community-based organizations. Its multiple modules are designed to reach out to low-income families and youth and provide resources to introduce them to camping, hiking, environmental education, volunteering, work experience and careers in the out of doors.
“This initiative is a model of how public-private partnerships can both conserve our land and provide opportunities for our young people to obtain jobs skills and broaden their horizons by connecting with the great outdoors,” said Secretary of the Interior Sally Jewell. “Through the 21CSC, we hope to expand these partnerships that foster economic opportunities and create a connection with nature for young people that lasts a lifetime.” Read about Interior’s Secretarial Order signed yesterday to engage youth in the great outdoors.
