Registration is now open for the Franklin's Ground Squirrel Symposium to be
held August 21, 2004 at Brookfield Zoo near Chicago.
At the symposium we will try to share what we know about FGS research, and
make contacts to further FGS conservation as well as research
collaborations. The symposium will be held all day from 9-5. Seven FGS
researchers have agreed to speak from 20-50 minutes each. The speakers are
Dick Bautz of Wisconsin DNR, Jim Hare
<>  of the University
of Manitoba, Ed Heske <>  and
Joyce Hofmann <>  of the
Illinois Natural History Survey, Jeff Heubschman
<>  of the University of
Wisconsin at Platteville, Scott Johnson of Indiana DNR, and Jackie
DeSanty-Combes of the Missouri Dept. of Conservation. We have also added a
short session of student talks. The symposium will conclude with an open
roundtable discussion of FGS conservation. Further information is at <> .
The registration fee is only $40, with lunch and snacks at two breaks
included. We ask that people please register as soon as possible to help us
plan. Here is a link to the registration form, which should be downloaded,
filled out, and sent in with your payment:
