When I start my project I think about nature in my region, but I know that ecological problems are not only in my country. To know more about places like this I find this nonprofit and read others problem. It is inspired me write own project and protect the nature.
The Nicodemus Wilderness Project(NWP) is a wonderful organization that promotes environmental stewardship. The NWP informs people about the importance of environmental sustainability and what they can do to help. One of my favorite aspects of this organization is that it emphasizes that everyone can have a postive impact on the environment.
The Apprentice Ecologist Initiative engages people around the world. Apprentice Ecologists are young volunteers that conduct their own environmental project and write an essay about their project. Three Apprentice Ecologists are selected to win an $850 scholarship each year. As an Apprentice Ecologist, I have learned about the power of taking initiative and how I can contribute to establishing a more environmentally-sound planet.
Moreover, people of all ages participate in the NWP's annual Make a Difference Day and National Trail Day. The organization also promotes recycling and works to eliminate nonnative species.
Also, the NWP sells Eco-Socks, which are made from all environmentally-friendly materials and/or recycled materials, and are produced by sock manufactures that practice fair trade and fair labor.
I highly encourage you to support the NWP and become a volunteer!
Very Inspiring Stories and Work Sharing

I appreciate the actions that this organization takes towards motivating and empowering young persons to make an difference in their environment - through education and promotion of action. I am happy to have come across this organization, and to be a part of it. I came across this organization due to a scholarship that this organization made available to young persons who lead a project of their own. It inspired me to take further action in assisting the environmental conditions of my community. I was grateful for the opportunity granted by this organization.
Thank you for your great support. We are now more confident and focused to achieve a green and clean world.
This was a very good experience, it is truly good for rewarding people and groups who care about and want to improve the environment.
my experience is always great. i feel like a new person every time i leave piedra lisa open space. Nicodemus does a wonderful job at making sure all of its volunteers are up to date, fed and hydrated, and have the proper supervision during the work.
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.
I have a five year experience in teaching PHYSICS.I also worked with insurance sector for six months and also in Indian BPO's in my vacations.
