Thank you for your interest in our inaugural Youth Ocean Conservation Summit Expedition at Biscayne National Park in south Florida! From March 17-19, 2017, twenty Youth Ocean Conservation Summit alumni ages 14 and up will have the opportunity to camp out on Elliott Key, the largest island in Biscayne National Park. There will be opportunities to explore the island's subtropical hardwood hammock, nearshore seagrass beds and rocky shorelines while learning about the park's challenges from rangers and scientists. You'll also have the opportunity to network with other young people (like you!) who are making, or seek to make, a difference for the world's marine ecosystems in a fun, casual and beautiful setting.
Due to limited space, interested participants must complete the application below to be considered for participation in this program. 20 participants will be selected to participate and will be responsible for getting themselves to and from Biscayne National Park's Visitor Center near Homestead Florida, for providing their own personal gear (to include bedding), and a modest fee of $50 to cover the costs of provided food. The Field Camp will provide boat transport to the island, tents, food/drink and logistical support.
To participate, complete the following application indicating your commitment to participating in the program and sharing why you would like to be selected to participate by February 24, 2017. Participants will be notified of their selection by February 28 and will receive instructions for completing their registration payment by March 3, 2017.
