Audio from Conference sessions are available on this page (please be patient as these files take a long time to download) as well as at UW’s iTunesU page. The iTunesU page is reached by going to www.uwyo.edu/itunesu/. This will open iTunes (you will need to download it from www.apple.com/itunes if you don’t have it already). Click on the public access, then when iTunes opens, scroll down past the courses to general offerings to Cooperative Extension Service.  

From there you can download the tracks and take them with you on your mp3 player, or listen to them on your computer directly. But for the presentation slides and handouts you’ll need to look on this page.
