The goal of the course is to provide wilderness specialists with a fundamental knowledge of mineral management principles so that they are prepared to coordinate with the minerals staff, and to provide the minerals staff with wilderness management principles as they relate to mineral uses. The course addresses the management balance between preserving wilderness character and managing allowable mineral related activities. REGISTER FOR FREE!
