Inaugural Meeting: State and Province Reports; Ranid Reintroduction Workshop
The first meeting of NW PARC was held in Bozeman, Montana, in conjunction with the annual meetings of the Montana Chapter of The Wildlife Society and the Society for Northwestern Vertebrate Biology. The states and provinces that make up the Northwest region all provided reports on their top conservation issues and amphibian and reptile programs. The Habitat Management Guides for the NW PARC region were introduced and breakout sessions were formed to discuss topics such as issues and priorities for herp conservation, funding, and partnerships. During the second day, meeting participants attended a field trip and workshop focusing on ranid reintroduction.
