About the 2023 Wild and Scenic River Training Series

Join us for a six-part Wild and Scenic River Training Series from January through June 2023! This series is designed to be participant-centered, include active discussion of Wild & Scenic River (WSR) related topics, and empower participants to connect with colleagues throughout the learning series. Our goal is for you to leave the sessions better equipped to engage in WSR planning, monitoring and decision-making processes.

This is for you if you are involved in Wild & Scenic River program planning, coordination, partnership development, stakeholder communication, implementation and decision-making, visitor management and safety, natural and cultural resource management, impact monitoring and assessment, and other activities.

RMS River Training Center instructors will facilitate the series using Zoom, interactive Google products, Padlet, and other virtual learning tools. It is important that participants can fully access and engage with these tools during the Zoom sessions with their cameras on and microphones enabled, ready to connect and learn together. Participation in all six sessions is requested but not required.

Materials are aligned with the vision of the Interagency Wild & Scenic Rivers Coordinating Council and the Technical Core Competencies for River Management Specialists and Non-Specialists. You can find more WSR training resources here or at rivers.gov.
