Conserving the Future Webinar

  • Saturday, December 15, 2012
  • 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM
  • On Line
"Conserving the Future: is a national collaboration between the US FWS and the National Wildlife Refuge Association to develop a long-range plan for the future of the refuge system and how friends groups can participate in that future.  A major conference was held in 2011, and content is still being developed.

FWS is sponsoring two on-line Webinars to give you a chance to participate in this proces.  Below is the text of the announcement from Joanna Webb who is the Refuge System National Friends and Partnership Coordinator.  Try to participate!

Dear Region 4 Friends,
You asked for more virtual "training" opportunities and we are delivering! 

This is a reminder that tonight, December 11, 9:00 pm EST is the first of three repeat Webinars designed specifically for Friends on why understanding the Refuge System's Conserving the Future vision process is important to you. 

Not only is it important to understand, but you have the opportunity to shape it while it's being created. We want to lead you to that opportunity through these Webinars.  Friends will be involved in working with their refuge to implement the vision plans and strategies, so now's your chance to shape your future. 

Check out the time options below and mark you calendar for one that fits your time zone.
Tuesday, December 11, 9:00 PM EST
Saturday, December 15, 11:00 AM EST
Monday, December 17, 6:00 PM EST

Attached are two critical files regarding the Webinar.  The Friends Webinar Plan includes the website address and phone call information for the Webinars.  For those that will be participating in a Webinar for the first time, you might find How to Join a Webinar useful.  

You might ask, can't I just watch a recorded version of it?  Yes you can, but by participating in the Webinar during the scheduled time you will be able to participate in real time with other Friends and ask questions. We will however send out the link to AmericasWildlife.org when the recorded version is available for viewing.

Thanks for your participation!
