For the first time, Oklahoma hosted the SWS South Central Chapter Annual Meeting. In addition to workshops, invited speakers, field trips and the student presentation competition, the unique and beautiful lakeshore location provided an excellent environment for technical information sharing, networking and social activities.

The meeting was held on the campus of the University of Oklahoma Biological Station (UOBS), located on the shores of Lake Texoma, an impoundment of the Red and Washita Rivers along the Oklahoma-Texas border. UOBS facilities include apartments, dorms, kitchen/dining area, classrooms, library, computer labs, maintenance shop, boat houses, lab and office space, a research park and recreational facilities (including pavilion, basketball court, horseshoe pit and volleyball nets) all situated on 30 acres of shoreline. An adjoining 282 acres of lowlands are leased from the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers. To find out more about UOBS facilities, please visit
