This dynamic conference is for professionals and partner organizations that coordinate, administer, or host training and volunteer programs in natural resource conservation, education, and outreach or for those interested in developing similar programming. This year the conference will be held in New Orleans, Louisiana. There will be many opportunities to explore the natural, cultural and historic sites in and around the Greater New Orleans area. During this conference, you can expect to gain knowledge from a diverse range of programs, network with colleagues, and obtain valuable tools to enhance your existing program or develop a new one.
