Professional Training for VegBank and the NVC

Part of the mission of the Panel is to provide training in the use and revision of the National Vegetation Classification. This includes collection of field data, development of new types and revision of existing types, and documentation of types.

We present workshops at the annual meeting and periodically with groups who request special training. The following is a list of those training workshops:
