Certificates and Short Courses
Online/Distance Credit Certificate Program
The Department of Fish, Wildlife and Conservation Biology, Colorado State University, will again offer the annual Wildlife Management Short Course on the campus during the week of March 28 – April 1, 2011. This popular course was developed for laypersons and agency personnel with non-wildlife training. A number of agencies have sent administrators, commissioners, planners, information, environmental education personnel, legislators, and other staff to this course to obtain a broad exposure to wildlife conservation and management. Citizen conservation organizations have also sent staff members.
This five day short course is designed to provide an overview of principles of wildlife (including fisheries) ecology and management. Current programs and issues related to natural resources conservation will also be discussed. The short course consists of presentations by University faculty and personnel from various agencies and organizations. Field trips may involve fishery research techniques demonstrations and a visit to a raptor rehabilitation center.
