The Sierra Nevada Adaptive Management Project’s (SNAMP) University of California Cooperative Extension team will be hosting a 2 day workshop on Collaboration and Facilitation in Natural Resource Management on August 8, 2013 and September 10, 2013 in Martell/Jackson, CA.
The goal of these workshops is to help improve communication by building facilitation skills within the many groups involved in collaboration in natural resource management projects. We will work to build a common language to support collaboration, share tools to prevent problems, and demonstrate interventions to support success when problems arise. These workshops are designed to support the building of a common knowledge base through mutual learning and discussion. UC Cooperative Extension has developed training modules for all levels of natural resource management staff and stakeholders interested in developing these skills.
Two different 6 hour trainings will cover topics such as stakeholder analysis, agenda building, listening as an ally, the decision making process, identifying constraints, reconciling differences and reducing conflicts. Participants will learn training concepts, practice methods and obtain the skills needed to pursue effective collaboration.The first training will be August 8, 2013 at the Amador County General Services/Department of Agriculture building (12200 B Airport Rd., Room A, Martell, CA) from 9am to 3pm.
Registration is required and there is a $25.00 materials and lunch fee. Please register on-line at http://ucanr.edu/collaborationworkshop. For more information please contact Kim Ingram at firstname.lastname@example.org or check the workshop web page http://ucanr.edu/collaboration.
