This spring the Alameda County Conservation Partnership, together with the Los Vaqueros Reservoir & Watershed and the San Francisco Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve Coastal Training Program, is once again sponsoring the Workshop on the Biology and Management of the California Red-Legged Frog 2014 for the 10th year running with presenters Greg Tatarian and Trish Tatarian. The workshop, slated for April 23 and 24, 2014 at the Martinelli Center in Livermore, CA, will provide a comprehensive review of the species’ natural history and conservation efforts with both classroom lecture and a field training session within the Los Vaqueros watershed. Among the topics covered are species identification, natural history, habitat requirements, management practices, habitat assessments, pond designs, equipment demonstrations, tadpole identification, and survey methodology, including a night-time training practicum in the field.
Space is limited, so act now! This year’s registration deadline is March 31st.
