The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources and the Timber Wolf Alliance are pleased to announce the 2015 Midwest Wolf Stewards Conference will be held at Northland College in Ashland, Wisconsin on Thursday, April 23 to Friday, April 24, 2015. We will send formal registration materials and more details to you in late February.
If you wish to be considered for a presentation at the conference, please send the title and abstract by February 20, 2015, to Dr. Erik Olson (firstname.lastname@example.org). It is likely that the number of proposed presentations will exceed our ability to schedule them all. Dr. Olson will let you know if your proposal has been accepted by early March.
A block of rooms is available at the Chequamegon Hotel (715-682-9095), one mile north of the campus. With the special conference rate, rooms range from $89.99 to $107.99 per night. Tell them you are with the Wolf Stewards Conference to obtain this rate. Prices include a hot breakfast. Note: Wisconsin state employees should request a ‘state rate’ room when making your reservation. http://bestwesternwisconsin.com/hotels/best-western-the-hotel-chequamegon

For those who plan to fly, the Duluth, MN airport is approximately an hour and half drive from Ashland.
