Conversations & Coffee dates and locations »

DNR coffee mug with red and white bobber floating in it To help mitigate the spread of COVID-19, all "Conversations & Coffee" events will be held in a virtual format.

If you're interested in speaking with DNR fisheries staff members to discuss local and statewide fisheries management activities, you might want to attend one of several virtual "Conversations & Coffee" events taking place this spring.

We have been hosting "Conversations & Coffee" for the past several years to give you an opportunity to meet with managers and biologists, discuss local issues and management activities, and get specific questions answered. These meetings are extremely informal; at many, no formal presentations will be made.

Enjoy your preferred coffee from the comfort of your own home at one of the following "Conversations & Coffee" virtual events:
