Workshops on Demand

Dr. Brett Roper (USDA Forest Service and Utah State University Department of Aquatic, Watershed and Earth Resources) offers assorted aquatic workshop topics "on demand". He will work with you on hosting aquatic workshops in your area. Generally there is a 10 to 15 participant minimum. Invite natural resource professionals from your area other federal agencies, tribal organizations, state, city, private, international and companies. You work with Brett to develop a curriculum to best meet your needs.

Contact: Dr. Brett Roper, 435-755-3566 or broper@fs.fed.us

Current options include:

  • 'R' & Statistics
  • Data Analysis using ExcelTM - Objectives: design Pivot Tables; use ANOVA and Regression Analysis; interpret data.
  • Basin Surveys & Applications (including inventories)
  • Aquatic Monitoring- Eastern
  • Sampling Amphibians - Objective: explain and demonstrate sampling methods for a variety of amphibians and associated habitats.

Dr. Steve McMullin (McMulling Training and Consulting) and other instructors from the multiple workshops will bring any piece of the workshops to your District or Forest. LNRC and CNRC are generated from the popular workshop formerly called Leadership and Communications (LAC). Get details, evaluaations and options at McMullin Training and Consulting's website.

  • Understanding Yourself and Working with Others (UYWO)
  • Leadership in a Natural Resource Context (LNRC)
  • Advanced LNRC (ALNRC)
  • Communications in a Natural Resource Context (CNR)

This is a cost-effective way to provide high-quality training to your employees. The workshops on demand can be tailored to your needs and address any topic covered in the regular workshop. To be most cost-effective, the workshops usually are 1.5 to 2 days long. Myers-Briggs is a popular topic of the workshops, usually combined with team building or conflict resolution/dealing with difficult people. Dr. McMullin has done these workshops for Forest Leadership Teams, Districts, several combined Districts, and other Federal/State agencies.
