Questions. . . kids are full of them, and we never tire of hearing them. If it weren't for questions, and the curiosity that inspires them, what kind of story would we tell? How would we engage? What could we learn?

It's the questions presented to us in the classroom and out in the field, by students and community members alike, that let us know our efforts are working. Right away we can see that what we are doing is making an impact. 

 

What students are saying. . .

present_circle7"What I like about the Talking Talons program is being around the animals and learning about them, how they live, what to do if you find an injured one, I think that's really important. Also, how they interact and live with us and how we survive together is interesting to learn."

This YouTube playlist contains many videos highlighting Talking Talons Youth Leadership's role in the Central New Mexico Community!

Talking Talons Youth Leadership works to transform generations of environmental leaders through experiences with nature, enhancing the lives of its young participants by instilling a sense of civic duty, providing a mission that youth can believe in, and teaching skills that will benefit a lifetime. 


Talking Talons Youth Leadership is serving its community in powerful, effective ways:

  • Building young leaders through environmental education and training in public speaking
  • Educating youth in science-based conservation through long-term, in-school programs
  • Providing hands-on conservation education and job-skills training at diverse outdoor classroom locations
  • Engaging youth and the community in wildlife habitat improvement projects
  • Managing community-based projects that benefit ecosystems and reduce the threat of catastrophic wildfires
  • Generating local jobs, volunteer and first-time employment opportunities at our non-profit Talking Talons Thrift Store
