Print Friendly Version
In cooperation with riparian assessment training officials in New Mexico, Dave Smith (USFWS Wildlfie Biologist) coordinated a joint Arizona-New Mexico Riparian Proper Functioning Condition class in Gallup New Mexico from June 12 through 14, 2007.  Twenty-two enrollees from various Federal, State, and Tribal organizations attended the 2 1/2 day training course.  Proper functioning condition, or PFC,is a qualitative method developed by the Bureau of Land Management to quickly assess riparian condition to establish management priorities for riparian recovery.  Each western state has a PFC teaching cadre, represented by numerous agencies, that holds training sessions and provide technical assistance around their state.  This particular course consisted of one day in the classroom and 1 1/2 days in the field assessing nearby riparian areas.
