Stewards for the Land students, class of 2019.

The vision of the Stewards program is to provide Indigenous youth an opportunity to investigate natural resource careers while learning about their connection to the land and their own cultural heritage—keeping their stories and their traditional ways of interacting with the land alive and well in the face of a new, technology-savvy generation.
