Hero for a Day

http://ak.c.ooyala.com/4wc2QxZzpkZXJzDoRCCj0vYR4W4e7DtX/PE3O6Z9ojHeNSk7H4xMDoxOjA4MTsiGN
Anyone can be a conservation hero for one day. An extension of Field & Stream's Heroes of Conservation initiative, Hero for a Day highlights grassroots conservation projects in local communities across the country, and connects you, our readers, with opportunities to help restore or improve wildlife habitat in your area.
Tell us about your project on the entry form.  If your workday is selected, Field & Stream will publicize the project and help recruit volunteers to pitch in. In addition to promoting the project, we will supply gift bags with items such as F&S and Toyota merchandise (while supplies last) to those participating.
Forms will be assessed as they come in. No project is too small, but it should be related to hunting or fishing in some way.

 

We had a blast visiting ten volunteer conservation projects in 2013! Watch our videos and nominate a project of your own, and we may send our film crew to report on your workday in 2014.

We are looking forward to visiting the following volunteer conservation projects this Spring. Would you like to volunteer? Stay tuned for more information!

Hero for a Day 2013: Establishing New Quail Habitat in Missouri

Volunteers with Quail Forever created escape cover and habitat connectivity for bobwhites where private fields meet public forest land in Missouri's Bootheel region. Experts also counted calls to assess the quail population of Crowley's Ridge Conservation Area.
