Investing Today In The Future Of Conservation

What We Do

The National Conservation Foundation's (NCF) mission is to educate and prepare conservation leaders for the sustainability and regeneration of our natural resources. The foundation cultivates, educates and inspires conservation leaders of all ages.

NCF is the nonprofit sister organization to the National Association of Conservation Districts (NACD).

Programming Dedicated To Current And Future Leaders

The National Conservation Foundation invests in two main programs to support conservation education.

The NCF-Envirothon is a high school environmental and natural resources program and competition that welcomes more than 25,000 participants globally each year. Through creative learning, team collaboration and competition, we can nourish a love for the outdoors, the environment and agriculture for future generations and our future workforce.

The Next Generation Leadership Institute, NGLI is a year-long leadership program designed to cultivate the next generation of locally-led conservation leaders through professional and developmental training sessions.
