Communications, Outreach and Visitor Services Workshop Broadcasts   Livestream Broadcast Link

Our public lands and work in natural resource conservation is rich with stories. These stories grab the attention of our audiences and capture their hearts and imagination. This training introduces innovative communications, outreach and visitor services tools, including storytelling, to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service community and encourages staff to integrate them into their work to build and maintain relationships with key audiences. Using a concurrent-session format, students will focus their learning on their specific training needs. Keynote sessions and several concurrent sessions will be offered as Livestream broadcasts for those unable to attend at NCTC.

Join us online from the National Conservation Training Center as we discover the impact our stories have to connect people with the work we do!

Who Should Attend:

Project Leaders, Communication and Outreach specialists, Visitor Services staff, Volunteers and Friend’s Organization members.
