Broadcast 1 (Part 1): Wind Energy Training Series for Voluntary Land-based Wind Energy Guideline (01:07:06)

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is pleased to announce a training broadcast series to cover the voluntary Land-based Wind Energy Guidelines and other relevant topics. May 22, 2013.

The Land-Based Wind Energy Guidelines are a tool for wind energy practitioners to minimize adverse effects of wind energy development and operation to wildlife and their habitats. The guidelines focus on collaboration of federal and state agencies, tribes, industry, and non-governmental organizations to develop environmentally responsible wind energy facilities.

The bimonthly broadcasts will cover emerging issues and provide direction for wind energy facility planning, development, and operations.
