Center for Conservation Leadership
Adam Scott is an Outdoor and Environmental Educator who, before joining the CCL program, spent the last 5 years teaching science, leadership, natural history, and outdoor skills throughout the Midwest to youth for the Boy Scouts, the YMCA, and Conserve School.
Adam has spent years of his life outside and hundreds of nights camping. He has built hiking trails in the desert, guided winter expeditions in the Northwoods, and can paddle a canoe through rapids. Adam believes it is important to serve others and savor the beauty of life. He is always practicing to become better connected to the humans and nature around him so that he can inspire others to discover and grow.
Adam is the 6th generation of his family to grow up in Kane County, IL. In addition to outdoor activities, Adam likes to play trumpet and draw. He also loves to watch cartoons, read science fiction and fantasy novels, and play board games with friends.
Do you love the outdoors? Are you concerned about nature and taking care of our natural resources? Are you interested in learning more about plants, animals, trees and the planet’s well-being? In other words, is caring about the environment in your nature?
If you are a high school student with a passion for your environment and a desire to get involved, the Center for Conservation Leadership (CCL) can help prepare you to make a difference in our future. CCL’s programs will help you develop a practical understanding of conservation—the careful use and protection of river, forests and other natural resources. Equally important, you will learn how to become a steward of the environment, how to assume responsibility, to take action personally and to lead others in making a positive impact on the environment.
CCL can help you contribute to a better future for yourself, for your community and for the entire planet. So take a look around. Enjoy your stay. Come back often. And take part.
CCL programs include the 1st Year Program, targeted to students in high school and a High School Stewardship Program for those who complete the Certificate Program.
