NRLI Fellows & Their Practicum Projects

The Institute trains North Carolinians who have a stake in the use and conservation of our state's natural resources. Each year, the Natural Resources Leadership Institute accepts participants from all across the state who work in all levels of  government – local, state, and federal, in business and industry, and non-profit organizations across the state. Once the classroom phase is over, each participant, whether working in a group or individually applies the skills they learn by embarking on a one-year practicum.

Committed to seeking  consensus on issues affecting the sustainable development of North Carolina's natural resources and the quality of the state's environment, NRLI participants seek collaborative solutions to contentious natural resource issues.  Having completed the classroom training and practicum, the participants graduate from the program and are recognized as Fellows of the Natural Resources Leadership Institute.
