Plans are underway to make the 5th Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies’ Wildlife Viewing and Nature Tourism Academy our best yet! Join us as we continue the exchange of information and resources among wildlife viewing and nature tourism professionals.
This Academy is unique, bringing together professionals from state, federal, non-profit, and private organizations to share and discuss real-world examples, case studies, and processes for nature tourism programs and projects throughout North America. Do you have a great project that can provide best practices, cost effectiveness, or viewing operations information to others? Can you provide new human dimensions information, marketing, or promotional expertise and advice? Have your outreach programs for nature tourism reached new heights? Consider sharing your knowledge and insight at this year’s Academy.
As Chair of the WVNT Working Group, I feel confident you will benefit from this academy. From our keynote presentations and breakout sessions to the networking events and field trips, the days are full of high value opportunities. Make plans now to join us in North Carolina!
