uddy Sneakers would like to recognize its many partner agencies and organizations that have contributed to making the program possible through a diverse array of support. The organization would particularly like to highlight its ever-expanding public and private land conservation partnerships that are allowing Muddy Sneakers students to explore national/state/local lands as well as private, permanently protected lands. While Muddy Sneakers will continue to prioritize the use of public lands for expedition sites, we welcome the opportunity to partner with conservation organizations to educate students about privately protected land and the remarkable gifts made by people in their community to ensure that these lands remain protected in their current state forever.
Conservationists nation-wide recognize with great concern that the coming generation of Americans will grow up largely disconnected from the natural world and uneducated about land and resource protection. Looking to help promote a future generation of conservationists and supporters of public and private conservation efforts, these organizations are each aware of the need to better incorporate the public in the work they do while specifically reaching out to youth in new ways.
