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 the Workshop and Conference Coordinators to learn more about planning and coordinating a workshop or conference. If you have not done so already, we recommend joining our mailing list to receive announcement emails about future workshops.
