Colorado Backcountry Hunters & Anglers (BHA) is sponsoring (along with multiple other hunter-angler conservation organizations) an introductory class on wildlife management at Western State Colorado University (WSCU) in Gunnison during February/March 2018.
Colorado Parks and Wildlife, Western State Colorado University and the Bureau of Land Management developed the class. The purpose is to share the rich science and management knowledge of wildlife in the Gunnison Basin in order to help members of the public gain a better understanding of wildlife populations and habitat issues. Course themes will include wildlife conservation, applied population ecology and wildlife habitat management along with challenges and opportunities facing wildlife conservation in the Gunnison Basin.
Colorado BHA chairman, David Lien, said: “Hunters are our wildlife thermometers in the woods and fields. As essential partners in wildlife management, they spend a great deal of time outdoors, providing Colorado Parks and Wildlife with important information on what is happening in the most remote parts of the state. Hunters report on the conditions of wildlife and habitat, game law violations and other threats to wildlife conservation. We are proud to be a sponsor of this wildlife management class.”
The three-part series will be held on three consecutive Thursday evenings (February 15, February 22, and March 1, 2018) from 6:30-8:00 p.m. For additional information contact Carissa Callison ([email protected]). Also see the Colorado BHA FB Events page.
