Species of Concern

Cerulean Warbler Summit Workshop


December 17 - 19, 2002 National Conservation Training Center in Shepherdstown, WV sponsored by the U.S. Geological Survey-Biological Resources Division and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service


The cerulean warbler summit workshop was held to formulate action plans for new collaborative research, monitoring, and conservation activities to address the needs of this species of concern. Sixty-five people attended and represented Federal and State agencies, non-governmental organizations, academia, and private industry, including several biologists from Colombia, Venezuela, and Ecuador, where cerulean warblers winter.


Documents distributed to or available to participants at the workshop are posted temporarily on this website to make them available for review or consideration by anyone who may wish to provide information or comments to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service during the public comment period on the 90-day petition finding.
