The Future Conservationists Initiative (FCI) brings high-quality environmental education to local second grade classrooms at no cost to the schools. All programs through the Future Conservationists Initiative are funded by donations to the Backcountry Conservation & Education Fund 501c3 nonprofit.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is included in an FCI program?

When we come to a school for an FCI program, we will visit up to three second-grade classrooms for an identical one-hour program. Our FCI program focuses on habitats, ecosystems, what all living things need – food, water, shelter, space, and differentiating between living and non-living things.

For Spring 2022, please request dates on Tuesdays February-April.
