Description

See also: California Red Legged Frog, Habitat RestorationOn March 26, 2009 Norman Scott and Galen Rathbun will present a workshop in northern Monterey County on the biology and conservation of the California red legged frog (CRLF). The workshop will consist of classroom lectures complimented by an afternoon field component. Intended audiences include: biological consultants, land managers, researchers, and regulatory agency personnel. A limited number of workshop participants may also register for one of two night time field training sessions on the evenings of March 25 or March 26(for additional information see separate webpage). Workshop Objectives: This is a great opportunity to receive training in species identification, field sampling techniques, and the habitat requirements of the CRLF. Workshop information will be useful for conservation planning and for educational outreach to agricultural producers and others who are considering projects that may impact CRLF. It will also provide foundational knowledge for monitoring projects where potential impacts to CRLF have been identified.
