The 146 Project

About the Program

Connecting Youth with Nature

The 146 Project is a fun way for youth to learn about habitat conservation, animal and plant species, and preserving open space. The Western Riverside County Regional Conservation Authority is preserving habitat to protect 146 different plants and animal species. The 146 Project, named after the number of protected species covered by the Multiple Species Habitat Conservation Plan in Western Riverside County, will help connect youth with nature and promote the region’s conservation goals.

K-8th grade students can earn a fun patch after visiting one of our land preserves – either in-person or online – and then completing a few activities to show what you’ve learned. Click one of the activity buttons below to get started!
