COVID-19 Response

As we continue to do our part to prevent further spread of COVID-19, we will conduct our 2021 training sessions using a remote format. Our staff has been working hard to create additional online resources to ensure managers have the information and support they need to participate successfully in PAMF. We have multiple training options available for the 2021 season including a remote live PAMF training and a self-guided course. You can learn more about each training by visiting our Participant Training page!

July is PAMF monitoring month! Be sure to monitor your management unit(s) and submit the reports along with your management reports by August 1st. Monitoring each July allows the model to track your progress overtime. Every management unit monitored in July will receive management guidance in mid-August. It is not too late to enroll new management units into PAMF!

All reports – enrollment, monitoring, and management – are due by August 1st!
