The Nature Conservancy has earned a reputation for its innovative, experiential approach to learning and dynamic, interagency cadre and student bodies.

Through a cooperative agreement with the USDA Forest Service and the U.S. Department of the Interior, each year the Conservancy and our partners sponsor 10-15 Prescribed Fire Training Exchanges (TREX). This innovative program reaches several hundred fire practitioners each year.

The Nature Conservancy is part of the Incident Qualifications and Certification System (IQCS), enabling Conservancy staff, volunteers, and selected partners to obtain Incident Qualification Cards. Learn more about this partnership and what it means for Nature Conservancy fire staff.
