Conservation Training Center (NCTC, Center) in Shepherdstown, West 
Virginia. We will use this new logo as the Center's official graphic

consistent visual image for the Center's training products and other 
items, including course materials, hospitality products, artwork, and 
other promotional materials that identify the Center and support its

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: We designate the indicated graphic depiction 
of the National Conservation Training Center's ``Entry-Auditorium'' 
building and the words ``National Conservation Training Center'' as the 
official logo of NCTC in Shepherdstown, West Virginia.
    We establish this logo for use on any training course materials, 
hospitality products, artwork, or other promotional materials related 
to the training curriculum, operations, and mission of the National 
Conservation Training Center. The logo is for the express use of NCTC's 
management and staff for uses including course notebooks, guest room 
writing tablets and envelopes, beverage containers, on-campus signs and 
banners, and studio-set artwork for distance-learning television 
broadcasts. No one outside of the FWS may use the logo ``without'' the 
approval of the Director of the FWS. Any unauthorized use of the logo 
will constitute a violation 18 U.S.C. 701 and subject the violator to 
possible fines and imprisonment. Examples of approved uses by outside 
groups could include, but are not limited to, stationery, calendars and 
postcards, clothing, and coffee mugs.
    The NCTC logo will be used as standalone artwork and will not be 
used with the official Department of the Interior seal, the Fish and 
Wildlife Service seal, or any other Federal department or agency logos.
    The NCTC logo may not be mechanically or electronically altered, 
cut apart, separated, or otherwise distorted in perspective or 
appearance, including the removal or redesign of the words ``National 
Conservation Training Center.'' No text will be shown in conjunction 
with this logo except for the approved words ``National Conservation 
Training Center.''
    The NCTC logo will always be presented as a single solid color, 
without gradients or other variant graphical treatments, with 
noticeable contrast to the background on which it is presented. The 
preferred color for the NCTC logo is ``NCTC Green'' (PMS 5555 or C56/
M35/Y46/K5 or R119/G140/B133). Secondary preferred colors are ``NCTC 
Red'' (PMS 7428 or C0/M80/Y45/K55 or R132/G43/B55) or 100 percent 
    The NCTC logo will not be reproduced smaller than 1 inch wide or 
with a font size smaller than 4.5 points.
    The Graphic Design and Publishing Branch of the National 
Conservation Training Center is solely responsible for the management 
and use of the NCTC logo, and for guaranteeing adherence to 
requirements governing the use of this logo, including communicating
