2nd  North America Congress for Conservation Biology – Missoula, July 13 - 16, 2014
Challenging Conservation Boundaries

We are thrilled to be joining the Wildlife Biology Program at the University of Montana and SCB's North America Section to host the second NACCB meeting! The full program, which includes Plenaries, Symposia, Contributed Talks and Posters is now available on the NACCB website.

Come say hello and check out our chapter table at the conference. You will find us outside the University Center Ballrooms during all coffee and lunch breaks, as well as at evening events. We will be selling MTSCB tshirts, wildlife-themed pint glasses, and raffle tickets for coffee sates with prominent conservationists! We will also be signing up people for memberships and promoting the silent auction.

Finally, here are some MTSCB sponsored events at NACCB that you don’t want to miss!

Wildlife Film Night: Monday, July 14th, 7pm in the UC Theatre

We will be showcasing films chosen from this year’s top picks at the International Wildlife Film Festival (IWFF). The IWFF is an event held in Missoula each year, dedicated solely to wildlife films, and involving the world’s top wildlife filmmakers, producers, scientists and conservationists. Tickets will be available at the door on a first come, first serve basis ($2 suggested donation). Concessions will also be available.

7:00 pm- The Mystery of Eels (55 min.)

8:00 pm- Touching the Wild (55 min.)

Chapters Mixer and Student Social: Tuesday, July 15th, 7-9pm, Ten Spoon Winery

This event will provide networking opportunities with SCB Chapter members, professionals and students alike, over a beautiful evening of music, wine and local food overlooking Missoula’s Rattlesnake Valley. Food will be available for purchase from two local food carts: The Masala Food Cart (Indian) and the Clove Cart Pizza (brick-oven pizza).

There will be free shuttle buses running from 6:30-7:15pm between the University of Montana (Adams Center on the north side of campus) and Ten Spoon Winery. Buses will also return guests at the end of the evening. 

Don’t forget your ticket (purchased during registration) as it will be required to board the buses and enter the winery.

Our Mission:

The mission of the Montana Chapter is to promote science and the application of the principles of conservation biology to Montana's local, regional, and statewide diversity.
