Interested in wildlife and habitat management in Texas? Well, here is your chance to meet up with land professionals from across the state on June 3-4, 2010 in Mason, Texas, for a ground breaking, collaborative, and informative workshop dealing with current trends and applications of biological monitoring. This is an opportunity for professionals to hone their technical skills, build inter-agency connections, and learn about trends in biological monitoring and how you can make the most of it in your profession.
Dr. Richard Teague will explain how remote sensing technology is providing an opportunity for consistent and feasible biological monitoring at the landscape level. Dr. Teague believes that research and service must provide the linkage that enables managers to base decisions for sustainable land use on the principles of ecosystem function. When it comes to wildlife management, this is where the rubber meets the road!
In addition to his research, Dr. Teague is the Associate Resident Director and Professor at Texas AgriLife Research and Extension Center in Vernon. There will be an opportunity for you to discuss your experiences dealing with biological monitoring including the problems and barriers keeping field biolgists from using the tool to its fullest potential. Discussion will be facilitated by Peggy Sechrist, a Holistic Management certified educator who brings years of training and experience in conflict resolution and group facilitation.
This is your chance learn about and create support for effective monitoring practices to insure a healthy Texas habitat now and into the future. This workshop will run from 1:00 pm-5:00 pm June 3rd and 8:00 am-noon June 4th. Free accommodations are available in a bunk house on site at Mason Mountain Wildlife Management Area.
