Event Description

The Natural Areas Training Academy, in conjunction with the University of Florida and The Nature Conservancy, are offering a workshop to build an appreciation of how to manage natural areas as part of a larger ecosystem, in coordination with neighboring land owners. Particpants will:

  • Develop an understanding of the concept of 'ecosystem management' and its relevance to resource management
  • Identify the types of issues that most benefit from cooperation across ownership boundaries
  • Become familiar with approaches that can be used to address threats facing entire ecosystems
  • Discover strategies that bring multiple organizations and private individuals together to achieve common goals and seek common solutions
  • Learn about a variety of working groups used to cope with complex environmental issues in Florida
  • Develop skills in listening, communicating, moderating group dynamics, and facilitating to cope with conflict

The workshop can be done either online or in-person; the online workshop can be completed at your own pace anytime between 9/22/2014-10/24/2014. The in-person training workshop takes place in Wekiwa Springs State Park, Apopka, FL on October 29-30, 2014.
