OFWIM has a limited number of travel grants available for presenters who need help attending our 2018 Conference in Hood River, Oregon. Apply by July 16 using one of the methods below:
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.
OFWIM is calling for papers, posters, and panel discussions to be presented at our 2018 Conference and Annual Meeting November 4-8 in Hood River, Oregon. We welcome presentations related to the conference theme “Let’s Partner: Moving Forward Together” or to fish and wildlife information management in general.
- Submit your abstract online
- Deadline: August 17, 2018
Submit a poster for the “Hacker’s Ball” or a presentation for one of our general sessions. We expect that a limited number of remote access seats will be available. If you can’t travel to Oregon, think about joining us virtually and giving a paper from your office. Send session topics, suggested panel discussion topics, and any questions to:
USGS/Pacific Northwest Aquatic Monitoring Partnership
