WWA 2020 Annual State Meeting
January 25, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm$15 – $25
Scratch your waterfowling itch by coming to Wisconsin Waterfowl Association’s Annual Meeting at Lambeau Field on Saturday, January 25th. You’ll be able to absorb the historic aura of the stadium while learning about Wisconsin Waterfowl happenings! Tours will be offered as well.
The meeting starts at 9 am, and concludes by 3 pm and the day’s agenda includes championship presentations by duck and wetland ecology “coaches”, post-game analysis of WWA’s 2019 accomplishments and pre-game 2020 planning, LUNCH, an opportunity to visit with your Wisconsin Waterfowl teammates and the induction of our 4th Annual Hall of Fame. Lambeau Leaps not included.
Guest speakers include:
- Taylor Finger, WDNR Migratory Game Bird Ecologist – “Wisconsin’s Migratory Game Bird Program Update”. A survey of current regulation updates and new zone options that will affect waterfowlers for years – and maybe the release of Wisconsin’s Waterfowl Management Plan.
- Tracy Hames, Wisconsin Wetland Association’s Executive Director – “Waterfowl, Wetlands, and Watershed Hydrology”. How Wisconsin wetland habitats are increasingly threatened, and what we can do about it.
- Sarah Orlofske, Assistant Professor & Curator of Animal Parasites, University of Wisconsin, Stevens Point – “Waterfowl parasites: The Good, the Bad, and the New”. Just in time for lunch… what’s inside those birds we’re harvesting and what it can tell us about migration trends!
- Peter Ziegler, WWA Habitat Ecologist – “2019 WWA Habitat Restoration Successes”. WWA habitat work performed over the past year and looking ahead!
- Drew Fowler, WDNR Waterfowl and Migratory Game Bird Research Scientist – “Current WDNR Waterfowl Research Topics”. What studies are helping us better understand current challenges in Wisconsin’s Waterfowling ecosystem!
