Endangered Species Act - Process, Science, and Strategies
Course ID: POL - 305
Hosted by Northwest Environmental Training Center

Description: This course will give the participant an understanding of the procedures and science involved with implementing projects subject to the Endangered Species Act, as well as strategies to avoid or minimize effects to listed plant and wildlife species. Training will include lecture, discussion of case studies and your experience with past projects, and hands-on application (the exact mix of training may change depending on location, access to habitat, and topics of local interest).

The class will end the first day with a field trip to a nearby lake and stream, both within a very short walk of the classroom. This will give participants an opportunity to see viable fish habitat and the type of work being done to preserve riparian corridors. During the second day, the class will walk to a nearby forested area and trail to see upland habitat and its connections to a local lake. The class will also experiment with different stream stabilization treatments using a streambed simulator (be prepared to get your hands wet!).
