2017 Annual Meeting


2017 Annual Meeting Review

This year’s Annual Meeting and Training Workshop was another great success! More than 70 conservationists from across the state gathered in early March at the Starved Rock Lodge in Utica to share successes, ideas, ponder future challenges, and generally enjoy each other’s company.

The two days of presentations are available below to review in case you missed what’s being called “the best conference yet!”
