Join The Western Section of The Wildlife Society for its annual meeting. This year's theme is Communicating Science and will offer opportunities to improve and practive science communication skills:
Economic, social, and cultural values and beliefs greatly influence behavior and decision-making. Understanding people’s feelings and perceptions can have a tremendous impact on coastal management efforts. The Social Coast Forum is all about the “people” side of coastal management.
The 2018 theme for this year’s conference is "Sagebrush Country: The Science of Working Lands" and will bring together many resource managers and researchers from federal and state agencies, ranches, tribes, and other organizations. Join the discussion on what research and practice is being done on public and private lands in order to address current management challenges, and where more can be done.
Please join us for a webinar presenting final vulnerability assessments for species and ecosystems in the Four Corners Region and Upper Rio Grande watershed. These assessments address Native Fish and Riparian Resources, Mule Deer and Elk, Sagebrush Ecosystems, and Pinyon-Juniper Ecosystems. The final assessments were developed by a team of landscape analysts led by Megan Friggens, USFS Rocky Mountain Research Station.
