Pillars of success: The intersection between research, management and implementation

This year’s MTTWS Conference theme is ‘Pillars of success: The intersection between research, management and implementation’.  Montana is a vast landscape with various social, economic, cultural and conservation needs.  To sustain our goals of sound wildlife management based on a foundation of science, it is clear that working cooperatively provides the greatest chance towards successful on-the-ground projects. How agency, academic, non-profit, landowner and tribal entities interact to find balanced solutions is integral in realizing our commitment to wildlife and the habitats where they exist. This theme will be obvious in the plenary session and will be sprinkled throughout the three-day conference.

The registration links are not quite ready to go yet- please check back soon!
