Coming up! Our next certification workshop is scheduled August 4. Dr. Joydeep Bhattacharjee of the ULM Biology program is our workshop leader.

Perhaps you recall from earlier communiques that Dr. Joydeep is on a research trip in the Himalayas this summer. He will return the middle of next week, just a few days before our workshop.

The consequence of this timing is that I have not been able to speak with him to resolve the details of our workshop. Nevertheless, I have emailed him a proposed agenda, in the hope that he has access to email and will take a minute to respond.

In the meantime, here is what I have PROPOSED:

  • Meet at Kiroli Park in West Monroe at 8 a.m. for intro and walking a couple Park trails.
  • Reconvene mid-morning at Ouachita Valley Library on McMillan Rd., WM, for classroom work.
  • Reconvene at 12 noon at Restoration Park, 700 Downing Pines Rd, WM, for lunch in pavilion at entrance and additional field work.

Please bear in mind that this is a DRAFT awaiting Dr. Joydeep’s approval. I have not finalized an agenda for the day for that reason. As soon as I am able to do that, I will distribute it to workshop enrollees via email.

And, of course, if you haven’t enrolled and plan to do so, now is the time. Go to the Certification tab at the top of this website and you will find instructions and links.

Look carefully at the photo above and you will see that the deer is not quite in sharp focus. Nevertheless, it is my favorite of all the photos I have taken at Restoration Park. Remind me to tell you the story sometime!
