The 2016 National Wilderness Workshop, free to all University of Montana students and faculty, includes sessions relevant to conservation advocacy including:

  • case studies that explore where public lands management direction has helped or hindered areas that await wilderness designation;
  • framing/reframing diverse government/non-government/corporate partnerships for conservation;
  • fundraising for conservation; permitting for youth education and outing organizations; field skills trainings qualifications, case studies and curriculum resources;
  • and the latest in wilderness values economics research, among many others.

This is the second annual gathering of wilderness professionals and practitioners in which attendees work together to address contemporary wilderness stewardship and advocacy issues.

The draft program features tracks offering participatory workshops in communications, wilderness character, partnerships, training models, and fundraising, plus special topics panels, informal networking times, and evening events including receptions and the Wilderness Olympics.
