SKILLS WORKSHOP ANNOUNCEMENT MEASURING FORAGE QUANTITY AND QUALITY FOR HERBIVORES
November 15-17th, 2023 (3 full days) (Nov 18. optional extra day)

Organizers: Rachel Cook, David Hewitt, Ryan Long, Lisa Shipley, Don Spalinger

    TWS’ Nutritional Ecology Working Group, in collaboration with Texas A&M Kingsville, are pleased to announce the second skills workshop focused on measuring forage quantity and quality for herbivores. The workshop will be a mix of lectures taught by a diverse panel of instructors, hands-on exercises in the laboratory and in the field, and interactive group problem solving sessions. Look for registration to open early in 2023 along with a detailed agenda on the main workshop and the additional optional day (likely covering additional field-based training and components of developing foodscapes). A minimum of 14 attendees will be required. With enough interest, we are also planning a third workshop to be held in June 2024 in Palmer, Alaska. Our workshop qualifies for 15 continuing education units (CEUs) in Category 1 of the Certified Wildlife Biologist® Renewal/Professional Development Certificate Program.
