Committee Meetings

Our volunteer committees are essential to the ACTWS successes. Each committee is comprised of dedicated ACTWS members who work diligently to further the our mission throughout Alberta. As part of our conference week, we host committee meetings open to all ACTWS supporters. This is your opportunity to learn more about what these committees are working on and perhaps find an opportunity to share your skills to further science-based management and conservation of Alberta wildlife and their habitats.

From Monday March 14 to Wednesday March 16, we’ll feature a different committee. Each meeting will share the successes/challenges of 2021 and program ideas for 2022. Register at the links below and an email with a log in link will be sent to you.

Rooted in Wisdom: Deer Aging Techniques

Embark on a journey of precision and insight with the Lethbridge College Wildlife Analytics Lab (WAL) at the ACTWS Conference in Jasper! Join our workshop, ‘Rooted in Wisdom: Deer Aging Techniques‘, to explore the secrets hidden within wildlife teeth. Explore both the field technique of ‘tooth eruption and wear’ and the laboratory marvel of ‘cementum analysis’ – both dedicated to unraveling the mysteries of ungulate ages. Delve into the heart of these techniques, comparing their accuracy and precision, with a revelation of the superior accuracy of cementum analysis. Learn the art of tooth extraction and witness the seamless process of submitting your own wildlife teeth to the WAL for aging through cementum analysis. Elevate your understanding of deer populations and contribute to the advancement of wildlife knowledge and bolster your resume with applied experience. Participants will gain hands-on familiarity with the field technique of jaw aging, and the lab process of tooth extraction, inspection, preparation, and cementum analysis. Join us in Jasper for a transformative experience at the intersection of field expertise and cutting-edge laboratory analysis!
