BWSR Academy

October 29-31, 2019

Breezy Point Conference Center

Breezy Point, Minnesota


Academy Registration: Academy registration will begin in late-August on the BWSR website. To ensure that session sizes do not exceed room capacity, BWSR will be closing registration to individual sessions as they fill up and registration for the entire day when we reach our daily maximum. Please keep this in mind and remember to keep an eye out for registration information so you can register early for BWSR Academy!

The 2019 BWSR Academy includes seven tracks with concurrent sessions designed to build conservation skills and increase your organization's effectiveness.  Please note - We've added two new tracks to the program this year, and will no longer be offering a "repeat" track.
