National Learning Center for Private Forest and Range Landowners

The National Learning Center for Private Forest and Range Landowners is a "virtual” natural resource education center, providing interactive online instruction for private forest and range landowners and extension educators.

NIFA supports the center through the Renewable Resources Extension Education Act program focus funds. These funds are awarded to the institutions that develop learning modules and to the University of Tennessee which hosts the center.

The center utilizes interactive technology and resources to increase teaching capacity. A portion of the center includes presentations, continuing education courses, and certificate programs these professionals can share at meetings of landowner groups or other organizations. Future plans include developing Web-based learning, including both synchronous and asynchronous online instruction for certificate courses and in-service training.

An advisory board oversees the center's plans and activities.
