The Cispus Workshop for Collaborative Resource Management

Today, agencies and organizations face natural resource issues that are difficult and complex. Involving multiple stakeholders in natural resource planning and decision-making through collaboration requires shared commitment, resources, and funding. It requires skills in communication and group dynamics as well as strategies and techniques that help people work together effectively and productively. For over 40 years the Cispus Workshop has provided relevant, practical professional development that is based in on-the-ground field experiences of natural resource professionals. Participants engage in interactive, hands-on learning and walk away with strategies and techniques they can employ the first day back at the office.

This is an interagency workshop, sponsored by and staffed by employees from both Federal and State agencies. Participants learn together in a collaborative environment and represent a variety of natural resource management agencies, organizations and the private sector. The workshop is held at the Cispus Learning Center, which is located on a 100-acre self-contained campus in the Cascade Mountains near Randle, Washington. It is about a 3-hour drive from Portland or Seattle.
