Greetings!

Please “Save the Date” for the Second Annual Southeastern Wisconsin Conservation Summit on November 2nd and 3rd, 2018 at the Forest Beach Migratory Preserve located just north of Port Washington, Wisconsin.

Our first Summit was a great success with 47 presenters,  31 posters and 184 attendees.  Presentation topics ranged from insects, mussels, biodiversity, birds, and a variety of land management and restoration activities.   View the abstracts from 2017 here:  https://wglbbo.org/swcs

We anticipate that this year will be even better!  We’ll have additional breaks to allow for more networking.  We’ll continue to encourage students to submit posters and give presentations.  And you’ll have the opportunity to see the continued restoration of a former golf course to a migratory bird stopover habitat.

Consider submitting a presentation or poster.  We will shortly begin accepting abstract submittals and will send out another email at that time with additional details about the Summit. If you participated last year, think about providing an abstract on a different topic for 2019; if you have significantly updated results on a project you presented on last year please consider submitting again.

Enjoy your summer!
