are invited to attend the first workshop focused solely on
Golden-winged Warbler conservation throughout their range (breeding
grounds). During this event, we will initiate development of
a conservation strategy for the species through research, education,
enjoy the Northwoods setting and take advantage of the many recreational
opportunities in the area. Bring your family and make this a
working vacation you'll never forget. There are many family-oriented
activities in the Lodge Village and the surrounding area to keep
your family entertained while you are at the workshop. Extra
meal tickets are available for them to participate in the social
awareness of Golden-winged Warbler conservation status throughout
its range (see map below).
