A little bit about our annual meeting….

OBWG’s annual meetings are primarily targeted at professional biologists and land managers, researchers, environmental contractors, educators, and university students. The meetings are open to everyone, but our content is science- and education-based. The intent of these meetings is generally to share agency updates related to bat management and research, research projects and results, education materials and opportunities, and to provide networking opportunities for professionals and students.
