Wildlife Management Short Course at CSU
The annual Wildlife Management Short Course will again be offered by the Department of Fish, Wildlife and Conservation Biology, Colorado State University, on the campus in Fort Collins during the week of March 25 – March 29, 2019. This popular course was developed for laypersons and agency personnel with non-wildlife training. A number of agencies have sent administrators, commissioners, planners, information and environmental education personnel, legislators, and other staff to this course to obtain a broad exposure to wildlife conservation, management, and issues. Citizen conservation organizations have also sent staff members.
This five-day short course provides attendees an overview of principles of wildlife (including fisheries) ecology and management. Current programs and issues related to natural resources conservation will also be discussed. The short course consists of presentations by University faculty and personnel from various agencies and organizations. Field trips may involve fishery research techniques demonstrations and a visit to a raptor rehabilitation center.
