NRCA’s Conservation Training Partnerships is funded by a grant (AISL-1612650) from the National Science Foundation Advancing Informal STEM Learning program. STEM is short for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math, and STEM education is seen by the U.S. Department of Education and many others as critical to maintaining and enhancing America’s global leadership and economic health.
Additional CTP Contributors & Funders include:
The Connecticut Land Conservation Council advocates for land conservation, stewardship and funding, and works to ensure the long term strength and viability of the land conservation community (from the CLCC website).
CACIWC’s mission is to promote the statutory responsibilities of Connecticut Conservation Commissions and Inland Wetland Commissions and to foster environmental quality through education and through the conservation and protection of wetlands and other natural resources (from the CACIWC website).
A distinguished Advisory Committee comprised of a mix of experts on environmental science, natural resource management, local conservation, and secondary school education (list of Committee members coming soon).
And, of course, all our local partners participating in the program and managing the local projects that will be initiated by the CTP (see map on home page).
