MNHC is partnering with the Boone and Crocket Club to bring a Conservation Across Boundaries (CAB) program to Montana this summer. CAB is designed to teach educators how natural resource issues are tightly linked to the biology, ecology, history, and culture of North American landscapes.
Participants will learn about the unique habitats, fish, wildlife, and regional ecology of different regions from a systems perspective. They will also learn from and interact with a variety of fish, wildlife, conservation, agriculture, and natural resource professionals.
CAB courses incorporate hands-on field investigations with discussion of land management and wildlife conservation on public and private lands. Emphasis is placed on comparisons of conservation issues associated with natural resources. Courses provide methodologies, materials, and projects designed for indoor and outdoor classrooms throughout North America.
Course limit: 16 participants.
Course Cost: $570 ($250 registration fee due with application; remaining $320 due first day of class).
Dates: July 14 – July 22, 2011
Credit: 3 graduate credits, pending approval, from UM-Missoula.
