Northwest Colorado teachers can participate in a field-oriented, Advanced Water and Wildlife Workshop to be held Sept. 20 and Oct. 4. Teachers who need recertification credit may sign up for one credit hour from Adams State College for this Advanced Project WILD Workshop. The registration deadline is Friday.

The focus of the workshop is “Water and Wildlife,” specifically aquatic and riparian habitats. On Sept. 20, the class will meet at Soroco High School and carpool to various outdoor field locations in the Flat Tops. Participants will get a first-hand look at the origin of the Yampa River in the Flat Tops Wilderness and data collected by the Upper Yampa Conservancy District. Agency staff from the Natural Resource Conservation Service (NRCS) and the Upper Yampa Conservancy District will be on hand to explain the Yampa River’s watershed, its streamflow rates, snowpack, various uses and other data for the past few years. Teachers will get hands-on experience with the in-depth U.S. Forest Service Water & Wildlife Investigations.

On Oct. 4, participants will meet at the Yampa River State Park west of Hayden and carpool to Elkhead Reservoir. The focus will be on the Yampa’s endangered fish populations and future plans by the Division of Wildlife.

Project WILD is sponsored by the Colorado Division of Wildlife. It is an interdisciplinary conservation education program that focuses on wildlife, habitat and our interdependence with the environment.
