Springs Inventory and Assessment Workshop
June 7-8, two-day lab and field workshop
June 11-15, Optional hands-on field training
SSI's next Springs Inventory and Assessment workshop will combine our standard two-day workshop with an optional 5 days of hands-on field training. Click here for more detailed information about our workshops and the curriculum.
The 2-day workshop will include afternoon hands on field training. Led by SSI's experienced crew, the optional 5 days of field time will provide the opportunity for participants to expand upon the skills covered in the workshop. This will include learning more about identification of flora and fauna from experienced field biologists; developing a better understanding of springs hydrogeology; and participating in every phase of inventory and assessment of springs. Participants will camp as a group on forests nearby Flagstaff. They will need to provide their own camping equipment (sleeping bag, tent, etc.), but three meals per day will be provided. On the last day, June 15, the group will return to the SSI lab at the Museum of Northern Arizona to enter the collected data into Springs Online database. Graduates from this program will have the experience necessary to plan fieldwork, conduct inventories, enter data, and produce reports.
This workshop is largely supported by the Bureau of Reclamation WaterSmart Program, with funding from the Desert and Southern Rockies LCC. The participant cost is only $195 to cover training materials and transportation for the two-days workshop. Please contact us if you are a student and are requesting a discounted student rate. The optional hands-on field training component costs $25/day.
