California Department of Fish and Wildlife

Natural Community Conservation Planning (NCCP)

Fellowships / Internships

The NCCP Program hosted interns from the Conservation Management Program, a new doctoral training program in the UC Davis Graduate Group in Ecology, for the first time in the Fall of 2009.

CDFW has also participated in the Sustainable Communities Leadership Program (SCLP) of the Environmental Careers Organization (ECO) by sponsoring a series of graduate fellows in the NCCP program. The Department is committed to improving the NCCP process, and thus sponsored program evaluations by the SCLP fellows. These  evaluations, listed below, are intended to capture the lessons learned in NCCP experiences to date.
