“One touch of nature makes the whole world kin.” ~William Shakespeare

You’ll have an opportunity to follow up the GLADE camp by taking your own conservation ideas home.  This is a natural extension of the passion for the environment you’ll experience at GLADE and it is a proving ground for your recently acquired leadership skills. Your efforts can positively impact your surroundings and inspire you to become involved in even more conservation efforts.

Upon completion of GLADE camp, you will able to apply for a $500 grant funded by Greater Ozarks Audubon and the Community Foundation of the Ozarks. The grant process will introduce you to the grant writing world. Sponsorships, partnerships, networking, matching funds, mentoring, leveraging, and win-win become a part of your working vocabulary. Teams consisting of  teachers, Master Naturalists, and/or other qualified conservation consultants are assembled by you with assistance from your specific project mentor, often someone you met at GLADE.  In addition, you’ll be able to form partnerships with other GLADE students to merge  individual grant awards into one large project, thus increasing the overall scope and impact of your work.
