OFWIM’s December newsletter is now available, wrapping up a busy year. Download a copy to see photos and stories from our 2017 Conference and Annual Meeting, an article on riparian modeling by Ryan Wortmann (this year’s travel grant recipient), and future plans for exploring story maps. Happy New Year, everyone!
Over 40 OFWIM members and other professionals attended our 2017 conference at the Chattanooga Choo-Choo. We had fine weather for field sessions and a full slate of posters and presentations that explored new ways of sharing fish and wildlife data with decision makers and the general public.
