Waterfowl Management Workshop Cover

The Future of Waterfowl Management Workshop was held in Minneapolis, Minnesota on August 26-28, 2008. The workshop was an important step in the evolution of waterfowl management in North America. Throughout its history, the waterfowl management community has shown great capacity for innovative thinking and action in the interest of improving waterfowl management according to specific objectives, as witnessed by creation of the Flyway Councils, the North American Waterfowl Management Plan, Adaptive Harvest Management, and the National Duck Hunter Survey. The Workshop marks yet another key point in the continuing development of a scientifically-based and socially-responsive management framework.
