Final decision: No Waterfowl Symposium this spring

By MWA, 04/21/18, 8:30AM CDT


Thanks again to everyone who made it to our annual conservation awards banquet and Minnesota Waterfowl Hall of Fame induction! It was a great evening and wonderful opportunity to honor people who have done so much for conservation in Minnesota and beyond.

Unfortunately, a spring snowstorm led to the cancellation of the Minnesota Waterfowl Symposium. While we had looked into the possibility of rescheduling the Symposium yet this spring, that isn’t going to happen. We had a full lineup of speakers but we simply couldn’t make everyone’s schedule sync up for another date. In addition, it was clear that finding space to hold a rescheduled Symposium was going to be a challenge.

So in the end, we decided we’d let Mother Nature win this time. There won’t be a Minnesota Waterfowl Symposium in 2018.

But it looks like spring is finally here, so hopefully you can get out and enjoy the melting snow, flying birds and fresh air. And good luck to anyone who’s got a turkey tag!
