Gray recently returned from a teaching engagement at the National Conservation Training Center in Shepherdstown, WV. His class on the Business of Banking was part of the Conservation Banking Training Course offered by The Conservation Fund's Conservation Leadership Network and the US Fish and Wildlife Service. The Course was sponsored by the Federal Highway Administration, USDA Office of Environmental Markets, US Army Corps of Engineers, US Department of Defense, and the National Mitigation Banking Association. Gray was joined by other instructors including Deblyn Mead, USF&W Service's National Conservation Banking Coordinator and Steve Martin from the USACE's Institute for Water Resources. This was Gray's second opportunity to teach at the (stunningly beautiful) National Conservation Training Center.
