About this funder:



Wyoming Youth For Natural Resources  is a program designed to encourage Wyoming youth to develop imaginative wildlife and natural resource conservation project that incorporate education, technology, volunteering and service to others.

The program is designed to encourage Wyoming youth to learn about Wyoming’s natural resources, about science and technology and their application to the wellbeing of Wyoming’s citizens.

Proposals should include at least one of the following elements:

  • Address at least one wildlife or natural resource conservation issue (for example, habitat and open space enhancement and protections, or the relationship of industrial development to habitat, or non-consumptive wildlife management).
  • Serve as a catalyst to initiate conservation and/or best practices in the areas of wildlife and natural resources.
  • Encourage the involvement of young people in volunteer activities centered around natural resources.
  • Apply new technologies (for example, geographic information systems or remote sensing) to outdoor learning.
  • Consider sustainability of the proposed project once grant funding has ended.
