NRCS Conservation Planning Boot Camp

NACD is offering an invaluable opportunity to as many as 70 conservation district and tribal district employees to expand their conservation planning and implementation knowledge and skills by participating in the NRCS Conservation Planning Boot Camp (CPBC) training in Lincoln, Neb.

Seven CPBC training sessions will be held in 2018, one each month from March – Sept. NRCS has reserved 10 seats in each session for NACD to fill with district or tribal district employees.

We have already filled the vacancies for the March session, however, space is available in all remaining sessions April – Sept., and we are currently accepting employee participation nominations. You can find details on the employee nomination process - as well as eligibility and prerequisite requirements - on the NACD CPBC webpage or contact NACD CPBC project lead Phylis Vandevere at

NRCS Conservation Planning Boot Camp is a three-week, intensive training course for technical employees that covers current conservation planning policy, procedures, and guidelines as outlined in the National Planning Procedures Handbook.
