Instead of field trips, National Wilderness Conference attendees can come early and participate in pre-conference training sponsored by the Society for Wilderness Stewardship, National Wilderness Stewardship Alliance, and the Arthur Carhart National Wilderness Training Center.
Partnerships and Professionalism: The New Paradigm for Wilderness Preservation, a pre-conference training opportunity for up to 200 attendees is being hosted at the Rio Grande Nature Center with an evening social at the Elena Galagos Open Space adjacent to the Sandia Mountain Wilderness. This training will be held October 14 and 15, 2014 and costs $75/participant. Participants who are also attending the National Wilderness Conference receive a $25 discount.
