Government agencies, industry and others are beginning to apply the concepts of best management practices and adaptive management to oil and gas development. This free workshop will examine what is going on in the Rocky Mountain Region with these innovative management approaches. This timely workshop will be kicked off with a presentation on the Western Governors' Association Coalbed Methane Best Practices Handbook that came out in April, 2004.

The workshop is designed for government agency employees, the oil and gas industry, conservation organizations, interested citizens, and attorneys working in the field.
