The Western Section of The Wildlife Society will hold their annual meeting on January 26-30, 2015 in Santa Rosa, CA at the Vineyard Creek Hyatt. Registrants will have the opportunity to attend several symposiums and technical sessions as well as participate in a variety of workshops and associated meetings.
The Western Section encompasses California, Nevada, Hawaii, and Guam. The conference usually averages 500 attendees, both from within the Section and in surrounding western states. There will be ample opportunities to learn as well as to network, particularly for students and early career professionals.
Many exciting events are planned for the conference, including a symposium entitled “Owl versus Owl: The Conundrum of Managing Barred and Spotted Owls in the Pacific Northwest.” There will also be a keynote address delivered by Ellie Cohen, President and CEO of Point Blue Conservation Science, as well as a plenary session on “Advancing Wildlife Conservation through Integration and Alignment in Planning.”
