The Midwest Migration Network is excited to announce our 2022 virtual meeting series for wildlife managers, biologists, scientists, students, and enthusiasts! This year, we will host four meetings focused on each of our initiatives: Banding and Ground Surveys, Great Lakes Wind-Wildlife Coalition, Radar and Acoustics, and Telemetry. During each session, we’ll explore the latest progress from each of our initiatives! All are welcome to join these FREE virtual meetings.

Use this registration link to register for one or all of our MMN virtual meetings!

**UPDATE: You can now view the meeting program here.**

All virtual meetings will take place on Tuesdays in August from 1-3 PM CT/2-4 PM ET. See session descriptions below.

8/2: Banding & Ground Surveys

Join the Banding and Ground Survey Initiative to learn about the launch of a new data submission platform that will be available to bird banders operating during the migratory seasons. We will review our mission to advance a shared protocol for migration surveys and explore new directions for related field work in the Great Lakes region and beyond.

8/9: Radar & Acoustics

Come learn about recent radar and acoustic research studies in the region and discuss how this working group can integrate with other MMN working groups to meet applied research needs for resource managers and conservation practitioners.

8/16: Telemetry

Tune into the Telemetry/Motus Initiative to hear updates on Motus station placement and tagging across the Midwest and parts of the Neotropics, and join our discussion on strategic Motus planning for the region and beyond.

8/23: Great Lakes Wind-Wildlife Coalition

Join the Great Lakes Wind-Wildlife Coalition to learn about our efforts to enable offshore wind energy development in the Great Lakes that minimizes impacts on wildlife. We will provide an update on efforts to inventory existing bird and bat data to inform planning, and to develop best practices for field studies and project development. We will be joined by experts who will present exciting new studies and initiatives that will move this emerging industry toward wildlife-friendly practices.

We hope to see you there!
