Location: Colorado State University, Fort Collins, CO

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 during the week of March 28 – April 1, 2016. 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.

Please note that the Short Course is limited to 50 participants. Academic credit is available for participants pending approval.
