As natural resources professionals, ensuring use of the best science available to manage trust resources is a critical goal. Creating effective partnerships, building collaboration, and being aware of new approaches to resource challenges are equally important. One of the best ways to ensure that we remain knowledgeable and up-to-date on new science and cutting-edge approaches to management is through participation in the annual meetings of The American Fisheries Society and The Wildlife Society.
This time around, American Fisheries Society and The Wildlife Society will come together for the first-ever joint national conference of these two organizations. The event will likely be the largest gathering of fish and wildlife professionals ever, and will provide unprecedented opportunities for science-sharing and potential collaboration.
