The workshop will consist of a daytime classroom session on March 15 and an afternoon field session (with a choice of the field session on either the evening of March 14 or March 15). Workshop Objectives: This is a great opportunity to gain an understanding of the biology of CRLF and also how this information can be applied to habitat management for this species.
