Plan Now to Attend 2018 Conference

Let's Partner - Moving Forward TogetherJoin us in Hood River, Oregon, November 4-8
for the 26th Annual Organization of Fish and Wildlife Information Managers Conference and Business Meeting!

Hood River is 60 miles from the Portland airport in the heart of the Columbia River Gorge. We’re planning a great conference focusing on partnerships and managing information across partners and jurisdictions. We will have drone demonstrations, visits to salmon habitat restoration projects, and a panel on the local 2017 Eagle Creek Fire.

Hood River is a go-to destination for foodies, adventurers, history buffs, and adrenaline junkies. It’s brimming with scenic hiking and mountain biking trails, fishing, craft breweries, wineries, and farm fresh bounty.
