Harlow Summer Seminar Tomorrow at the UW-NPS Research Center
Diana Miller, fisheries biologist with Wyoming Game and Fish, will be the guest speaker as part of the Harlow Summer Seminars. The Harlow Summer Seminars are located at the University of Wyoming-National Park Service (UW-NPS) Research Center, located at the AMK Ranch in Grand Teton National Park.
Seminar starts at 6:30pm. Before the seminar a barbeque will take place at 5:30pm. The cost is $5 per person. No reservations required. For more information, call the UW-NPS Research Center at (307) 543-2463.
The topic for this seminar is “Fisheries Management in the West: Case Studies on Jackson Lake and the Hoback River”. Miller will give a brief background on the history of fisheries management in the US and highlight changes in fisheries management across the West that influenced our local fisheries, specifically Jackson Lake and the Hoback River. “How we got where we are today plays a large role in how we move forward into the future,” she says.
In addition, Miller will discuss surveying methods of fisheries and how decisions are made based from survey results. Miller researches and monitors fisheries within the upper Snake River Drainage area, talking with anglers and evaluating different management alternatives. She received her bachelor’s degree in wildlife biology from Colorado State University and her master’s degree in fisheries management from UW.
The UW-NPS Research Center provides a base for university faculty members and government scientists from throughout North America to conduct research in the diverse aquatic and terrestrial environments of Grand Teton National Park and the greater Yellowstone area.
