Equip and inspire agency leaders and partners to ensure that America's National Wilderness Preservation System endures for future generations.
The Arthur Carhart National Wilderness Training Center, established in 1993, to preserve the values and
benefits of wilderness for present and future generations by connecting agency employees and the public with
their wilderness heritage through training, information, and education. The Center is jointly staffed and funded
through an interagency partnership between the Bureau of Land Management, US Fish and Wildlife Service, US
Forest Service, and the National Park Service. Oversight for the Center is provided by national wilderness
program leaders from each of these four wilderness-managing agencies, and in addition the US Geological
Service and the interagency Wilderness Policy Council. The Center is focused on developing products to
support the Knowledge, Skills, and Abilities in each of six Wilderness Technical Core Competencies.
