As you may know, the Washington and Oregon Chapters of The Wildlife Society, NE Partners in Amphibian and Reptile Conservation, and the Society for NW Vertebrate Biology are presenting a Joint Meeting in PDX, February 13-16 at the Red Lion at Jantzen Beach. The theme of the meeting is Regional Strategies Addressing Global Challenges.
We have received an extraordinary number of contributed papers and posters. Specifically, on Wed the 14th, Tom Lovejoy will be the keynote speaker followed by a robust group of theme-focused invited sessions.
Given the timely importance of the meeting theme, the Joint Meeting Committee thought it would be worthwhile to reach out beyond our traditional biologist/wildlife manager audience, to other environmental/conservation-related groups and stakeholders that might find this program of interest.
Please pass this on to others who may be interested!
Please watch this informative video about aspen restoration in Eastern Oregon and the importance of avian monitoring.
See the article posted by the State of Oregon for interesting information related to Wildlife Biologists in Oregon. Good information for early professionals and those considering the wildlife profession.
This event has been canceled due to low RSVP. If you are interested in seeing this event happen, please contact Vee Blackstone at email@example.com.
Join ORTWS for the next in our Legislative Outreach series. We are hosting a Meet and Greet with State Representative Dan Rayfield on Saturday, February 21, 2015 from 10:15 – 11:15 AM at Natural Grocers in Corvallis.
WHEN: Saturday February 21 10:15 – 11:15 AM
WHERE: 1235 NW 10th Street Corvallis, OR 97330
Why is this important? Rep Rayfield is the House co-chair of the Natural Resources Subcommittee on Natural Resources. He and the Senate co-chair head up the committee that makes most of the budget decisions on natural resources issues, including wildlife management. The co-chairs of the full Ways and Means Committee make major decisions, such as how much money will go to natural resources budgets, and the subcommittee will then decide how that money is divided up.
So, letting Rep. Rayfield know that ORTWS is here to provide sound scientific information to help him with those decisions is a pretty big deal!
Meeting Agenda: Introductions around, Rep Rayfield will speak a bit, and ORTWS will inform Rep Rayfield about us and our membership, the Oregon Conservation Strategy, and our interests. Then we will have Q and A from the membership!
Please RSVP to Vee Blackstone at firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can ensure a good, supportive turn out. Our goal is to have at least 20 members there, and students are welcome and encouraged to attend!
Can’t make it but have a question? Sent it to Vee Blackstone and she will ask it for you!
