The meeting will be the standard format with the SBDN meeting held Thursday, a poster session and auction on Thursday evening, and the Mammal Colloquium held Friday. As in the past, there will likely be add-on meetings for one or more of the work groups (e.g., spotted skunk, Raf bat, small-footed bat), but no details have been finalized. We are also exploring opportunities for training workshops and a field trip.

While specific details have not been determined, other topics may include state, regulatory, and WNS updates, and other discussions on important topics related to the conservation of bats and other species of mammals in the Southeastern U.S.
