The Canadian Wilderness Stewardship Program – Empowering Youth to Be Leaders in Conservation

(Theme 4 – Habitat, Theme 6 – Natural Capital)

Organization: Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society (CPAWS)

Timeline for Completion: 2020-21


The Canadian Wilderness Stewardship Program, funded by the Government of Canada through the Canada Service Corps, is a year-long program that educates, trains and inspires future stewards of Canada’s great wilderness.

The three core components of the program are:
1. A CPAWS-led expedition of a regional watershed in need of protection;
2. A participant-led, volunteer community service project focused on conservation or education; and
3. A summit where participants share knowledge and develop skills in civic engagement, conservation, leadership, and advocacy.

Program Goals:
. To enable participants to experience the benefits of performing meaningful volunteer community service in their regions
. To build participants’ confidence, leadership ability, and critical thinking skills
. To empower participants to become ambassadors for regional wild spaces within their communities and create a culture of conservation engagement
