Every year CMI members get together to provide updates on their projects, catch up on each others’ news, and take part in field trips. It’s an informal atmosphere and non-CMI members are always welcome. This year 50 people met at Memorial Hall in Silverton and heard 7 talks, viewed 4 posters, and had a choice of 3 field trips. Our Annual General Meeting was held just before lunch.
Jakob Dulisse followed-up on his presentation from the morning by showing us a breeding area, some fencing, and two Highway 6 underpasses at Summit Lake. Jakob netted toads from Summit Lake so the group could view them.
