A Chat with Randy Robinson and Chelsea McKinney

Randy Robinson and Chelsea McKinney will speak to us about Conservation Connect and provide an illustrated tour of the Video Studio. Conservation Connect is a free web-based video series produced by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s National Conservation Training Center (NCTC).  Each six to eight minute episode connects youth with the great outdoors with the focus on 1) a unique wildlife species; 2) a conservation career; and 3) technology that conservation professionals use to study and protect wild animals. Conservation Connect targets children ages 9-13, although any age is encouraged to enjoy this sneak peek into the world of nature.

Chelsea McKinney and Gabriel Harper discuss conservation careers

Randy Robinson works as an Instructional Systems Specialist and Producer of the “Conservation Connect” series for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service at the National Conservation Training Center in Shepherdstown, WV. The programs produced by the NCTC Studio serve natural resource professionals in state, federal, and non-governmental organizations as well as k-12 and university audiences. Randy enjoys kayaking the beautiful rivers and streams of the Appalachian Mountains.

Chelsea McKinney works as a General Biologist in the Division of Education and Outreach, Branch of Career Awareness at NCTC. She works with course leaders and instructors to produce education and training broadcasts via the Conservation Training Network and NCTC Studio with all staff.  Chelsea enjoys being able to create youth programs and recruit others to be able to have the same amazing experiences that she has had through her education. She has a passion and zest for “Paying it forward” to others.
