    ANROSP's monthly or bi-monthly membership zoom calls build on the wealth of experience gained by ANROSP members in critical aspects of managing a statewide naturalist program. Through peer-to-peer exchanges, seasoned practitioners share valuable insights to new and old programs alike. These calls reinforce our network as a learning community and we strongly encourage other state naturalist programs to join our network to participate in these and other valuable events. Members receive an invitation to suggest/host topics and a monthly or bi-monthly zoom reminder with the event link.

    ANROSP Annual National Conference Call for Presentations 
    Accent on Alliances:  Building and Sustaining Program Partnerships 
    SEPTEMBER 10 - 12, 2024
    Minnesota Valley National Wildlife Refuge Headquarters and Bloomington Education and Visitor Center

    The Alliance of Natural Resource Outreach and Service Programs (ANROSP) is a national consortium of natural resource-focused adult education and stewardship programs, including Master Naturalists, Master Watershed Stewards, Wildlife Stewards, Master Woodland Mangers, Open Space Programs, and more.  ANROSP facilitates networking and exchange of information and resources among coordinators of service-oriented environmental education programs across the United States and helps create healthy ecosystems and communities through participants who learn, teach, and practice natural resource stewardship.

    This dynamic conference is for professionals and partner organizations who coordinate, administer, or host training and volunteer programs in natural resource conservation, education, and outreach or for those interested in developing similar programming. During the 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.

    Conference Topics
    All presentations relevant to professionals who coordinate natural resource service programs will be considered.  Special consideration will be given to proposals that address cutting edge research about volunteer programs, volunteer management, natural resource education or interpretation.
    Presentation Types
    We are seeking proposals for the following presentation types:
              • ORAL PRESENTATION (20 minutes) – Oral presentation may highlight case studies, program successes, or novel approaches to natural resource outreach and service programs; or be interactive and aim to provide participants with new skills applicable to their program or to the overall advancement of ANROSP.
              • POSTER PRESENTATION - Please consider submitting a proposal to present a poster at our “Program Marketplace” poster session.  This is a great opportunity to talk one-on-one with colleagues about your research,  program strategies, impacts, etc. Posters giving an overview of a natural resource outreach and service program are welcome.

    *Please consider submitting both a poster AND an oral presentation. We want to see your work and projects submitted in both media formats.

    Presentation proposals are due by July 1st. Participants will be notified of acceptance approximately July 15th. [Presentations submitted after the deadline will be considered pending space availability.]

    Poster proposals are due by August 1st. Participants will be notified of acceptance approximately August 15th.

    Join us on our "Virtual Roadtrip". We'll caravan to several main attractions to discuss current events and how ANROSP programs can best support each other. During our journey we'll be visiting scenic overlooks to view the beautiful landscapes conserved by our member programs and enjoy some fun car games to network and engage with each other.

    The conference will take place over 3 days (Sept 22-24) with 4 hours each day (1pm-5pm Eastern Daylight Time).  We will take the journey together “live” online using video conference technology (e.g., Zoom); all participants will need a computer with reliable internet connection and video/audio capacity.  Each day will contain 3 sessions.  Member attendees are encouraged to participate in all sessions if possible; but there will be an option to register for individual sessions as well.  A detailed agenda will be posted soon; here’s what to look forward to:

    ·        Roadtrip Rendezvous – Let’s warm up our engines as we come together for the annual member meeting, including reports from the board of directors and Q&A from members.  The Rendezvous will include a keynote and presentation of our annual awards.

    ·        Main Attractions – These interactive workshops are being organized by the ANROSP Board of Directors with the goal to support member programs and ANROSP as a unifying organization. Workshops are only open to current ANROSP members.  Topics include: 1) Assessing the needs of ANROSP member programs, 2) Diversity and inclusion in natural resource and stewardship programs, 3) Opportunity for multi-state collaborations, and 4) Adapting to new delivery techniques.

    ·        Scenic Overlooks – We’ll pull over to take in the sights at different locations around the country as we watch videos submitted by member programs highlighting the ecosystems they help conserve and showcasing their program’s accomplishments.  Videos will be pre-recorded, and shown “live” online during the conference, followed by Q&A with the program representatives.  Scenic overlooks sessions will occur throughout each day.

    ·        Networking – A valued highlight of ANROSP national conferences is the opportunity to network with colleagues.  The start and end of each day will include some fun “car games” to help us get energized and engaged with each other. We will also plan small group breakouts and interactive discussions during the workshops.

    There will be a small registration “toll” to join this year’s conference, allowing members to attend the full conference (12 hours and 4 workshops).  Registration details will be announced soon -please mark your calendar. Registration open August 25th.
