WE APOLOGIZE, BUT DUE TO LAST MINUTE CANCELLATION BY LEAD PRESENTER, WE HAD TO CANCEL THIS WORKSHOP!

 

Workshop Goal

 

Provide participants with information and tools for improved ability to analyze a site to determine if/how riparian buffers would be appropriate for benefitting wildlife and aquatic resources.

 

Objectives

 

Participants significantly improve their ability to analyze a site and determine:

                       

A.    If/how a riparian area buffer would be appropriate to improve wildlife habitat

B.    How a riparian area buffer would interact with the adjoining land use

 

Description

 

This one-day workshop trains participants in how to improve their analyses in consideration of the use of buffers to conserve wildlife associated with riparian areas.  Presenters will train participants in analytical frameworks for determining if and how buffers could be effective at improving wildlife/fisheries habitat and how such buffers would interact with the adjoining land use.  The workshop includes hands-on, skills-improving exercise, including field exercises, to improve integration of course material. 

 

Instructors have expertise in the wide range of subjects key to better understanding the subject matter.  Workshop instructor Carlie Henneman, with Point Blue Conservation Science, draws on her own as well as her organization’s experience with wildlife ecology and buffers in training others in improved conservation approaches.  Workshop instructor Joe Merz, with Cramer Fish Sciences, has extensive experience training professionals on aquatic resource conservation and riparian conservation.

 

The workshop fee of $200 includes a classroom session on September 24 at the Felton Community Hall as well as field training sessions along the San Lorenzo River in downtown Felton as well as Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park.  Fee also includes coffee, lunch, refreshments, and handouts.
