On April 28-29, 2015, the University of California, Davis will offer a course in adaptive management for environmental professsionals at its Sacramento location.  The course will explore the history, policy and legal contexts, and implementation of adaptive management in the United States.  Participants will gain hands-on experience in developing conceptual models and theories of change to identify hypotheses that are feasible to test iteratively through the adaptive management process.  Among other things, the instructors will address assessment and synthesis of scientific information, specification of success criteria, and adjustment of models and actions, including monitoring.  For more information or to enroll, click here.  I am teaching the course with Erica Fleishman, who is with the John Muir Institute of the Environment at University of California, Davis.
