Dr. Michael Rubbo, Director of Conservation Science at Teatown Lake Reservation, will lead a workshop for municipal officials and professional biologists who want to gain experience identifying and assessing woodland pools. In this workshop participants will:
- Learn the ecology and natural history of woodland pools
- Discuss the regulatory status of pools and their conservation
- Identify potential pools remotely using maps and aerial photographs
- Visit pools in the field to assess their status and overall quality
Participants representing municipalities will receive evidence of 4 training hours of credit. It is the responsibility of the participant to present that evidence to his/her Town of Village Board with a request that the municipality certify those hours toward the 4.0 hours mandated by New York State regulations. Registration is required. Space is limited. The workshop will meet at the Cary Institute's main building. Laptop computer or ipad with wireless capability is recommended.
Please bring a bag lunch, drinking water, and wear sturdy shoes or hiking boots. Coffee and tea will be provided for lunch.
