BLOOMINGTON, Minn. (AP) – Hunters, outdoor enthusiasts and natural resource managers will gather at the Mall of America Ramada Hotel to celebrate Minnesota’s waterfowl and wetland resources.

Saturday’s Minnesota Waterfowl Symposium will let hunters and enthusiasts meet with waterfowl biologists and managers representing several conservation agencies and organizations. It runs from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

This 17th symposium will focus on blue-winged teal, an important species to Minnesota hunters, as well as wild rice, which is an important food for migrating waterfowl.

Organizers have also scheduled a variety of other presentations throughout the day.  The event concludes with a question and answer session with Department of Natural Resources Commissioner Tom Landwehr.

The symposium is sponsored by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, in partnership with the Minnesota Waterfowl Association and the Minnesota DNR.
