Collaborative conservation through training and experience

Through coursework and experiential learning, the CCC trains current and future conservationists with skills in collaborative conservation. Through the CCC’s Fellows Program, students, faculty, and practitioners receive experience, training, and mentoring on incorporating collaborative approaches into their projects. CCC staff teach Collaborative Conservation (NR543B) to students in the Conservation Leadership master’s program where students learn to address complex conservation issues at local, regional, and global scales. Our Western Collaborative Conservation Network regularly offers training on a wide range of topics ranging from storytelling to facilitating collaboratives. 

The Conservation Fellows Program is a flagship program at the Center for Collaborative Conservation.  Fellows receive critical training in how to incorporate collaborative methods and adapt their projects to use collaboration as a tool. Learn more about the training and resources available to fellows.

The Conservation Leadership Through Learning Program is a graduate program through Warner College of Natural ResourcesHuman Dimensions of Natural Resources department. Our staff teach courses focused on the theoretical and practical aspects of collaborative conservation efforts.
