You are invited to join fellow wildlife researchers, managers, educators, students, and administrators from across the state for the 2017 joint meeting of the Alaska Chapter of The Wildlife Society and the Alaska Herpetological Society.
The joint meeting is scheduled in Fairbanks from April 3rd-6th at the University of Alaska, Fairbanks Wood Center. This year’s meeting theme is “Cross Cultural Connections”. The meeting will include a workshop prior to the meeting in the afternoon on Monday (April 3rd) entitled “Wildlife Service Dogs” and a second workshop on Tuesday (April 4th) afternoon entitled “Challenges and Opportunities in Partnering with Indigenous People“. On Thursday (April 6th) the morning session will be devoted to the Alaska Herpetological Society.
We are seeking ideas and suggestions for special sessions that TWS members would like to see at the upcoming meeting. In addition, if you would like to volunteer during the meeting please let us know.
