UNF’s Outdoor Ambassador: Connecting Ospreys with the Outdoors

Student: Nikki Adams

Outdoor Nation is a partnership between the National Park Service and the Outdoor Foundation that aims to connect millennials with the outdoors and local National Parks through recreation. Outdoor Nation’s Outdoor Ambassador grant provides a valuable leadership opportunity for students interested in honing their outdoor leadership abilities through direct experience. I applied for this nation-wide competitive grant, which involved a thorough application process, including a video application. Once I was chosen as UNF’s Outdoor Ambassador, I began planning my six events: Two on campus and two National Park events celebrating Earth Day and National Public Lands Day.
