7th Annual Midwest Bat Working Group Meeting & Conference
On April 21-22, 2016 the Midwest Bat Working Group (MWBGW) will be having its annual meeting at the Ohio Union. The MWBWG is a group of professional biologists in state, federal, academic, and private organizations as well as students, traditional and non-traditional educators working together to address bat-related issues with a regional approach. While our annual event is called a meeting, it’s really more of a conference, with presentations on the latest bat research and invited speakers on current bat-related issues. Students are invited to attend and/or become members to the MWBWG. There is a FREE student/professional lunch mixer on the first day of the meeting, April 21st. We are planning to have professionals working in the bat arena at the mixer, representing different fields of work: consultant, interpretation/enviro ed, research, academia, state and federal government agencies. Students will get a free boxed lunch and a valuable chance to speak to a variety of professionals in the ENR field. If you are a student and interested in attending please register for the Midwest Bat Working Group Meeting then register for the student/professional mix by contacting Katrina Schultes/.
