California Tiger Salamander Workshop

May 6, 2014 @ 9:00 am - May 7, 2014 @ 8:30 pm

$350
The Alameda County Conservation Partnership is pleased to host this workshop on the biology and conservation of the California tiger salamander (CTS), for the 10th consecutive year. California tiger salamander specialist Christopher Searcy, Ph.D. will be the instructor. Class size is limited to 32 participants to provide a focused learning environment. The workshop includes a classroom lecture session, as well as field sessions in smaller groups to allow for a more interactive experience with the presenter and species.

This workshop is a great opportunity to gain an understanding of CTS biology and ecology. By completing this workshop, we hope you will also better understand how this information can be applied to habitat management for the species. The information will be useful in large-scale and local conservation planning efforts. Topics discussed by Dr. Searcy will include: the geographic distribution of CTS and hybrid populations; upland and aquatic habitats and their management; individual organism movement patterns, population and community ecology; survey methods; methods for assessing potential project impacts; and approaches for avoidance and minimization. The field session will include training in species identification, sampling techniques, and habitat requirements. (If you are interested in how this workshop might apply to your ability to obtain CTS survey permits, contact your agency permitting representatives.)
