Wildlife Conservation and Management (WCM)
- explain habitat issues and concepts that shape resource management at the national, regional and local levels; including climate change.
- apply habitat concepts and management in light of recent theory,
technology and research findings.
- apply new knowledge to situations and actual problems encountered
in resource management.
Teaching methods are a ‘blend’ of online and on
site: the first part of the course is taught online over a period
of 6 weeks, the second part is taught on site for 1 week.

leeway on letting people drop. If you are registered, check with

a waiting list, you will need to find a substitute or pay fixed

Message from Dr. Carol Chambers:
The revamped workshop we are offering is the same workshop
we held as a 2-week course in Flagstaff in the past.
We now offer the workshop as a 6-week on-line portion followed
by a 1-week session in Flagstaff.
The on-line portion will provide concepts and discussion
of topics such as ecological processes, conservation biology,
wildlife policy issues, problem areas (e.g., invasive species)
and examples of projects (e.g.,, how to make a project appeal-proof)
- all related to wildlife conservation and management. The on-line
portion will be conducted over a 6 weeks period giving people
plenty of time to complete course work. We expect it to also
involve discussions with experts in the field (as it did in
the past.) The on-line portion would not be static, but would
engage participants in hands-on learning, discussions on-line
with other biologists in the course from all regions of the
FS, and instructors who are FS employees or have expertise in
The on-site portion in Flagstaff will include discussion
and field trips synthesizing knowledge from the on-line portion
and (of course) see some of the incredible wildlife and sights
of Arizona which might include California condors, the Grand
Canyon, herpetofauna - for example, a unique species of rattlesnake
facing habitat fragmentation by road construction.
I am very excited about the workshop and we think that having
the workshop offered as a blend of on-line and on-site
allows us to get to know our participants while making it easier
on the participants by only being away from work 1 week.
Thanks for your interest, and if you have more questions, please
