**Please note, your registration will not be finalized until we receive your payment of $120 made out and sent to the Elkhorn Slough Foundation c/o Grey Hayes; 1700 Elkhorn Road; Watsonville, CA 95076. After pre-registering for this workshop, please be sure to pre-register also for ONLY ONE of the two evening sessions (but not both!). On May 14 and 15, 2008, Pete Trenham, Ph.D. will present a workshop in northern Monterey County on the biology and conservation of the California tiger salamander (CTS). Dr. Trenham has published a variety of papers on the ecology and life history of the California tiger salamander and has most successfully taught this same workshop several times. The workshop will consist of a daytime classroom session and a choice of attending a field session either the night prior or the day of the classroom session. Workshop Objectives: This is a great opportunity to gain an understanding of the biology of California tiger salamanders and also how this information can be applied to habitat management for this species. The information conveyed will be useful in large-scale and local conservation planning efforts. Topics discussed will include: the geographic distribution of California tiger salamanders and hybrid populations, upland and aquatic habitats and their management, movements, population and community ecology, survey methods, and methods for assessing potential project impacts and approaches for avoidance and minimization. Participants will receive field training in species identification, sampling techniques, and the habitat requirements of the California tiger salamander. Refund Policy: Please note, we must receive your payment no later than April 30th for us to reserve a spot for you at the workshop. We cannot refund any of your registration fee(s) if you cancel after April 30th, 5 p.m.
