Event Description: 

The northern long-eared bat (NLEB) is one of several bat species impacted by white-nose syndrome, a fungal disease that has killed millions of bats in North America.   Due to declines caused by white-nose syndrome as well as continued spread of the disease, the NLEB was listed as a threatened species under the Endangered Species Act on April 2, 2015. On January 13, 2016 the US Fish & Wildlife Service released the final 4(d) rule which identifies protections provided under this threatened species listing.

DEEP Divisions of Forestry and Wildlife are offering a one-day workshop for Connecticut certified forest practitioners to explain how forest management practices can conserve known NLEB populations through best practices, circumstances when these 4d rules apply, and how to comply with these Endangered Species Act provisions. 

Approved for 2.0 CEU’s for CT Certified Forest Practitioners
