Assessing Riparian Condition Workshops — Info for 2012 Workshops in Colorado


From email from the U.S. Bureau of Land Management (Jay Thompson):

[Click here for] information about two workshops focusing on Assessing the Condition of Riparian Areas that will be held in Colorado this summer. These workshops are intended to introduce private landowners, state or federal employees and others involved with riparian management about the Proper Functioning Condition Assessment process for determining the health of riparian areas. Please see the attached brochure for information about the assessment method, the Colorado Riparian Team, target audience, as well as locations, dates, registration instructions for our 2012 workshops. Many of you who are receiving this message have recently attended one of these workshops – we are not asking you to attend again, but instead are hoping that you will forward this message to others in your agency or organization who might be interested in attending. Thanks for your help in getting the word out about these workshops.

The Colorado Riparian Training Team has been holding these workshops since 1996, typically conducting two or three workshops each year. Class sizes are limited (to about 30 participants), and unfortunately we usually end up turning some folks away for lack of room. If you have attended one of these workshops in the past five years, you can sign up to attend as a “refresher”, but your name will be placed on a waiting list, since preference is given to folks who have not attended a previous workshop. If there is space available, you will be moved from the wait list to the attend list.

Thanks to Loretta Lohman (NPDES Colorado) for the link.
