At the beginning of February, seven members of the lab had the opportunity to travel to the Western Section of the Wildlife Society conference, held this year in Redding, CA. The week spent in Redding was filled with engaging talks, useful workshops, the chance to connect with wildlife colleagues, and lots of quality time with lab mates. We even managed to find an afternoon to go on a hike in nearby Castle Crags State Park. Kylie, Emma, Madi, and Greta all presented posters on their M.S. thesis research, and did an excellent job representing the exciting research going on in the Conservation Ecology Lab!
