The Ancestral Lands program was identified and funded as a Youth Programs ¿Youth Demonstration Project¿ in 2011. NPS participation in the Ancestral Lands program will enable the project to expand its Hiking Club at El Morro/El Malpais National Monuments and to operate a Southwest Parks Ancestral Lands crew to complete projects at National Parks in Arizona, Colorado and New Mexico These programs fit directly with the Department¿s Youth Initiative of engaging youth in Play, Learn, Serve and Work. The Hiking Club engages youth in both Learn and Serve activities while the Lands Crew engages youth in Work activities that directly support the NPS goals of providing a safe access to national parks while protecting natural and cultural resources. Both projects will benefit youth as they learn about National Parks, local ecology and geology, conservation and environmental issues, service opportunities and cultural and historic resources as well as the planning, operations and maintenance needs in national parks. Additionally, the projects support the self-empowerment of Native American communities through the development of programs across Indian Country that: 1) provide jobs and experience for local Native American youth; 2) connect youth to their heritage and cultural values; 3) complete important conservation projects for their communities, and neighboring public lands; and, 4) exposes Native American youth to potential careers with public land management agencies.
