Family Campers & RV members have always been concerned with protecting the environment and conserving natural resources. A history strong in conservation programs has earned FCRV the title of “Campers with a conscience.”

At the heart of the Family Campers Conservation effort is a program designed for local chapters to learn about environmental issues in their own area, and take action to improve the local ecology. States, Districts and Chapters can plan activities which are tailored to local needs while individual members who take part in these projects can earn recognition in nine categories: 

  • Wildlife Conservation
  • Soil Conservation
  • Construction/Restoration
  • Conservation Education
  • Recycling
  • Air Conservation
  • Highway & Park Beautification
  • Forestry
  • Water Conservation

FCRV programs are designed to build awareness for conservation among members:

  • Poster Contest – members of all ages create conservation messages through artwork
  • Essay Contest – written opportunity for youth & teen members in grades 5-12 to share how conservation is important in their lives.

Family Campers has often rallied its membership on a regional or national basis to react to specific environmental threats. The organization’s effort in creating an awareness and combating the spread of spongy moth, emerald ash borer, and more recently spotted lanternfly is an example of such coordinated conservation action.

The National Conservation Board is made up of: National Conservation Director; Reporting Trustee, National Wildlife Director; and two members at large.
