Description

See also: Western Pond Turtle, Habitat Restoration

The Western Pond Turtle 2012 Workshop was held on August 16, 2012 from 8:30 a.m. - 5 p.m., at the Elkhorn Slough National Estuarine Research Reserve.  

The workshop fee was $285.  Training consisted of classroom lecture and lab with hands-on opportunities with the species.  Because our training site does not have easy access to natural populations in the field, this training did not have a field-based training component. 

Intended audience included:  biological consultants, land managers, researchers, and regulatory agency personnel.

The workshop featured experts Drs. David Germano and Galen Rathbun. The instructors presented a comprehensive training on the biology and conservation of the western pond turtle (Actinemys marmorata). The instructors have published reports and papers on the ecology and life history of this species, and their lecture summarizes the knowledge base on the ecology and conservation of the species.
