March 22-24, 2018: Wisconsin Summit for Natural Resources Volunteers

Please join us for our first conference.  We are hosting this conference with the Wisconsin Citizen-based Monitoring Network and it's called the Wisconsin Summit for Natural Resources Volunteers.  It's open to everyone!  All presentations, workshops, trainings and field trips held during the Summit will count towards the advanced training hours for Master Naturalist volunteers.  This is an easy way to get all 8 hours completed.  We also hope you’ll consider sharing your experiences and expertise too!

Awards will be given for Outstanding Master Naturalist Volunteer; Outstanding Master Naturalist Instructor, and Outstanding Volunteer Project.  Service pins will also be distributed at the Summit.  If you cannot attend, your pin will be mailed to you in April.

Please consider giving a talk or poster presentation at the Summit.  View the Call for Presentations and submit your presentation abstract at https://uwccs.eventsair.com/wisnrv/abstract   

Registration will open in December 2017.  This Draft Schedule shows the anticipated activities for each day of the summit.
