Montana Tech Graduate Student Presents at North American Arctic Goose Conference


Montana Technological University graduate student Bailey Tasker recently presented at the 2022 North American Arctic Goose Conference (NAAGC) in Corpus Christi, Texas. The conference, hosted by the Arctic Goose Joint Venture, had some of the leaders in the waterfowl science world from across the continent in attendance.

Tasker, from Butte, Montana, presented an oral presentation of her graduate work developing a fall forecast model for snow geese migration. This model is an important step to advancing the waterfowl protection efforts at the Berkeley Pit in Butte, Montana. The work is a collaboration between Montana Technological University, the United States Geological Survey (USGS) Western Ecological Research Center - Dixon Field Station, Environment and Climate Change Canada - Banks Island Project, Montana Resources, and Atlantic Richfield. 

This past summer, Tasker was accepted into the Delta Waterfowl’s Waterfowl Breeding Ecology Program. The program only accepted 12 students from across the United States, Canada, and Mexico. Tasker is also the co-founder of a non-profit focused on wetland and waterfowl conservation in the Clark Fork Valley.
