I live on the East Coast but have heard great things about the Nicodemus Wilderness Project both by word of mouth and in the media. This is a wonderful group providing much needed volunteer services for environmental clean up and involvement not only locally, but nationally and internationally. Impressive!
The Nicodemus Wilderness Project is an amazing organization many ways. When it comes to environmental issues, they achieve a spectacular goal of educating the coming generations by promoting contests among young students from highschool and college to take an initiative to positively impact Earth's environments. This is not only a efficient way to stimulate younger generations be proactive and care about our world, but also an inspiring experience to others. I had my first contact with NWP when submitted my essay about my experience with recycling project in Pantanal's community, in Brazil. Through their website I could inspire and be inspired by other students' projects, and this year I helped choosing this year's winner of the award.
After meeting project directors Rob and Yih-Ming, I have continued to donate to this project and to share it with others through the classes I teach. Each year I receive incredible progress reports of the amount of inner city students the Project is now bringing in to the Sandia Mts to clean up and to learn about nature. I am a professor in Maryland and someday hope to hike those same trails with my granddaughters, dragging out own bags of collected debris. WHAT A MARVELOUS CONCEPT...THE NEXT GENERATION AND CITY KIDS EMBRACING WILDLIFE AND RIVERS.
I had a great time becuase everything is very well organized and everyone who is there really wants to help. With everyone's help we all have a great time and we accomplish a lot which makes you feel very good about yourself. At the end of your day you know you made a difference and NWP (Nicodemus Wilderness Project) organizes and brings everything together to make it a positive experience.
The Nicodemus Wilderness Project is true to it's words and has continued it's mission to improve the land that we live on. It has done so in a grassroots effort that has spread internationally emphasizing education of today's youth to preserve the landscape around us.

The Nicodemus Wilderness Project (NWP) provides unique opportunities for young people to conduct their own self-directed environmental stewardship projects. As a current board member and volunteer, it is greatly rewarding to be an active part of the ongoing development of NWP's Apprentice Ecologist Initiative. This service-learning and experiential education program reaches out to youth from around the world who, in turn, have completed truly inspiring projects to help save our environment. The winning partnership between NWP and youth volunteers is making a real difference in communities around the world, one project at a time.
