The National Conservation Training Center trains and educates natural resource managers to accomplish our common goal of conserving fish, wildlife, plants, and their habitats. As the "home of the Fish and Wildlife Service," NCTC brings exceptional training and education opportunities to Service employees and others.
NCTC is a gathering place where conservation professionals from all sectors can learn together in an environment especially designed for them. Government, non-profit organizations, and corporations can come together in a non-threatening, collaborative setting to learn new skills, share perspectives, break down barriers, establish networks, find common ground, and move toward field-based solutions built on consensus and mutual interest.
Located approximately 75 miles from Washington, D.C., the NCTC campus provides full-service residential facilities, complemented by professional staff, cutting-edge programs and curricula, and the most advanced technology available.
Randy Robinson and Laura Jones are our guest speakers today. Both of these talented professionals provide distance learning opportunities for students and adults through the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
Hiking foot paths take you through eastern hardwood forests and Potomac River meadows.
