Wilderness Training Courses

In 1993, the four agencies that are responsible for managing the nation’s wilderness: the U.S. Forest Service (USFS), under the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS), and National Park Service (NPS), under the Department of the Interior founded the Arthur Carhart National Wilderness Training Center (Carhart Center) to provide consistent training for wilderness stewards. Wilderness areas are wild, undeveloped, federally protected areas where you can see wildlife in its natural habitat, enjoy adventure and unmechanized recreation, or just relish solitude. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service manages more than 20 million acres of Congressionally designated wilderness — about one-fifth of all the designated wilderness in the nation. Wilderness Connect For Practitioners hosts a library of online training courses developed by the Carhart Center that focus on this important curriculum area.
