Train the Trainer

The following modules are intended to assist land managers and volunteer leaders in the Oak Openings region with their training needs, addressing management and monitoring efforts in the region while having a consistent message every time.  Lesson plans include a guide for the instructor/trainer and a Power Point to be used during class time, as well as links to find additional materials.  These are currently in review stage and we are asking that anyone who utilizes these please provide feedback via our survey.  We are also interested in the workshop attendees opinions about the workshop and have created a survey for them as well.
