Description: This workshop, presented by Janice Engel of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service will provide an introduction to the ESA, its purpose and sections, and then focus in on the parts most relevant to partners and agencies - Section 7 consultation. We will explore the regulatory process to better understand how consultation works, and we'll provide a framework for hitting the mark when developing a Biological Assessment (the document for initiating consultation). This is a half-day, afternoon workshop.
