3rd Conference of the North American Pika Consortium

The 3rd Conference of the North American Pika Consortium will be held April 16-17, 2015, in Golden, CO, at the American Mountaineering Center.  The conference will highlight the diversity of research and monitoring being conducted on pikas of North America, and the advances being made in understanding their ecology and response to environmental changes.  The conference will include oral presentations organized by topic, posters on emerging efforts, and a half day of focused working-group meetings on topics such as climate, research, monitoring, conservation, management, and more.  We envision an atmosphere that promotes networking, collaborative discussions, constructive feedback, and enjoyment.  Lodging rooms have been reserved at several nearby establishments.  Please plan to join us in Colorado at a lovely time of the year!  For more information, contact any of the following members of the Organizing Committee:
