CWD Symposium and 2023 Pathways: Human Dimensions of Wildlife Conference

It has recently come to our attention that the 2023 Pathways Conference overlaps with the 4th International CWD Symposium. Both conferences are being held in Colorado the week of May 31. The conferences’ planning committees are working together to ensure human dimensions experts can attend and/or present at both meetings, if interested. In particular, the CWD Symposium’s planning committee is working to schedule the majority of its human dimensions-related presentations during the Human Dimensions session on June 1 and the Pathways’ planning committee is working to schedule all CWD sessions on June 3. Additionally, the committee is considering hosting a shuttle bus for all interested meeting participants to travel between Denver, CO, to Fort Collins, CO, if needed. If you are interested in a shuttle, please contact WCNR_hdnr_Pathways@mail.colostate.eduMore information will be posted when it becomes available.
