An Explanation of the Natural Resources Opportunities

Training opportunities for Tribal staff and representatives to engage Tribal fish and wildlife programs that are closely tied to the Tribe’s current hatchery efforts. The Native American Fish and Wildlife Society (NAFWS) Annual Conference offers the ideal opportunity for Tribal Representatives to network with key individuals from Tribal Fish and Wildlife departments throughout Indian Country.
Natural Resource Management training will also be offered through the Falmouth Institute in the area of Natural Resource protection and development as well as through the Virginia Institute of Marine Science (VIMS) in the area of Virginia coastal river habitat restoration.
Applying for grant funding is imperative to effectively manage our Natural Resources for years to come. Tribal members and staff will be able to attend training on Grant Writing for Conservation offered through the National Conservation Training Center (NCTC).
Tribal Staff and Community Representatives will attend workshops and breakout sessions made available through the National Congress of American Indians (NCAI) Annual Convention during the project.
