On March 8th, 2013 CLfT concluded its 57th Workshop. The first CLfT Workshop was conducted at the Max McGraw Wildlife Foundation in Dundee, IL in 2005. Since that 1st workshop CLfT has conducted a total of 45 Student Workshops and 12 Agency Workshops. The total number of participants attending a CLfT workshop has exceeded 875.
Professional Workshops began in 2010, unlike the student workshops attended by university students, Professional Workshops involve participants who are current fish and wildlife agency employees.
The CLfT workshop experience was described by Kristina Summers from the Georgia DNR in an article from the Georgia Wild E-Newsletter. In the article, Kristina reveals her feelings about the workshop and how she has benefited in her profession from her attendance. Thanks to Kristina for writing a great article!
