A capacity class of 22 participants practiced principles, skills, and techniques for effective natural resource negotiation at the Advanced Negotiation Course, held September 18–20th at the USGS Fort Collins (Colo.) Science Center. Course participants represented environmental planners and others from the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation, Colorado Department of Transportation, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, USDA Forest Service, Vermont Natural Resources Board, and the University of Texas. Lively discussions included the participants' own work on multiparty negotiation teams regarding resource decisions directly affecting the Snake River, Colorado River, Big Horn River System, a national wildlife refuge, the Animas-LaPlata Rivers Project, and other natural-resource-based entities. FORT social scientists conduct research-based courses in basic and advanced negotiations for natural resource professionals every year. Two Basic Negotiation Courses will be offered next spring on April 8–10 and again May 13–15, 2008.
