The 81st Annual Midwest Fish & Wildlife Conference will be on Sunday, January 31, 2021 - Wednesday, February 3, 2021 at the Intercontinental Saint Paul Riverfront Hotel and the Saint Paul RiverCentre.

The theme of the 2021 Midwest Fish and Wildlife Conference will be “Fostering Diversity”. In addition to the work natural resource professionals do to encourage species diversity in the habitats they manage, it is critical that we also foster diversity in participation in the outdoors among the people we serve and who work in our professional ranks. Our plenary session will feature Carolyn Finney, author of Black Faces, White Spaces, a seminal work on the roots of gaps in outdoor participation between white people and other ethnicities. Other plenary speakers will describe programs being used to close some of those gaps both among different ethnicities and genders.

COVID STATEMENT:
PLEASE NOTE: We recognize that the impact of COVID-19 is still being felt across our region, and we realize this is a challenging time for everyone. Since we can’t predict the wider impact for the future, we plan to run the conference as scheduled and will adapt conference deadlines and policies as necessary. If an in-person event isn’t possible, we’re prepared to offer a fully virtual event and all oral and poster presentations will be included in the virtual format. We’ll continue to provide updates on our plans for a successful event.
