Zach Traylor, 50/50 Conservation District Soil Technician - Zach now works for a conservation district in Northern Kentucky.


Space is still available in the July session of Conservation Planning Boot Camp (CPBC) for district and tribal district employees. All expenses incurred for attending CPBC will be reimbursable by NACD.

Zachary Traylor, soil conservation technician for the Franklin County Conservation District in Kentucky, attended the April, 2018 session of CPBC.

“At first, I was leery of going to Conservation Boot Camp,” Traylor said. “I am pleased to say that all my doubts dissolved once I got to Lincoln. The three-week training combines a hands-on look at planning in the field with exploring the documents that go along with planning process.

“Beyond that, I was able to meet people from all walks of life across the United States and create bonds that will last forever. Conservation Boot Camp has instilled a sense of confidence in my planning capabilities and I would recommend this experience to anyone who has an interest in advancing their career and knowledge base.”
