Personnel from the New Mexico Ecological Services Field Office assisted in the organization and facilitation of the Western Bat Working Group Conference/Workshop held in Portland, Oregon, March 31-April 2, 2005. The conference provided a forum for biologists to present and discuss diverse issues related to bats such as: wind power, forest health, abandoned mine closures, water developments, and population genetics. The workshop resulted in the update of species accounts for 16 of the most imperiled bat species in western North America. The Conference/Workshop was attended by individuals from 12 western states and 2 Canadian provinces. New Mexico Ecological Services Field Office staff presented information on the status of Allen's lappet-eared bat in New Mexico. Lyle Lewis (NMESFO) was presented a plaque in recognition and appreciation of his service to the Western Bat Working Group; for his vision and leadership in establishing the Group in 1996; for serving as its first Chairman; and for organizing regional workshops over the last several years among other accomplishments
