Workshops & Conferences

We offer professional development workshops for individuals or groups interested in expanding and/or updating their skill sets. Many workshops offer tours and hands-on activities along with the opportunity to earn professional development hours (PDHs). We also coordinate a number of conferences and symposiums each year. Previous conferences included those on aquaculture, stream restoration, and waste management. Please contact Brittany Santore to learn more about planning and coordinating a workshop or conference.


ANNOUNCEMENT: We are working diligently to secure new dates for workshops for 2019. Please check back to this website regularly for updates. We will also send out announcement emails when new workshops are available. Thank you for your understanding.
