NACD is proud to announce the second year of the NACD Student Conservation Careers workshop, hosted in Las Vegas, Nev., in 2020. The workshop will run during the 2020 NACD Annual Meeting February 7-9, 2020. This unique opportunity for undergraduate college students is an NACD program sponsored through NRCS, the United States Forest Service (USFS) and the National Conservation Partnership.

The workshop will provide an immersive experience for up to 15 highly qualified undergraduate college students and will showcase career paths in conservation, agriculture and natural resources management. Attendees will learn about career options within the National Conservation Partnership, meet conservation professionals and make valuable contacts. The National Conservation Partnership includes the USDA, NRCS, USFS, state conservation agencies and conservation districts from across the United States.

Presenters during the sessions will be conservation, agriculture and natural resources management professionals from field-work, program management and policy career paths. These professionals will share their career stories and recommendations for developing portfolios. Participants will also develop conservation career outreach plans and discuss action strategies to implement career outreach on their campuses. Participants will have an opportunity to network with conservation leaders from across the U.S. at this annual event.

Starting in October, any student wishing to apply should go to the application form at this link and fill out the application and upload the required documents.

Deadline for application submission is December 1, 2019 at 11:59 p.m. Eastern.
