Hello Felid TAG!

Here are the links for the Felid TAG Registration for July 11-14, 2023 in Columbus, OH.  We will be doing things a little different this year, and the silent auction/dinner will be after the TAG meetings on the 14th, so you should plan to stay for the entire day if you can.

If you are just attending on July 11 for the SSP meetings- Free

If you are attending for the full SSP meetings/Full Conference-$250

If you can only attend for 1 day of the conference-Individual Days-$100 per day


Post Conference Trip

There is a limit of 50 people, $50 per person.

Buses will leave the Columbus Zoo at 8:30AM and return at 5:30PM.

The group will go on an open air safari though open range animal areas where they will see rhinos, giraffes and many other rare and endangered animals roaming in large, natural settings. There will be extended time at the carnivore stop.

The tour lasts about 3 hours. Lunch is not provided, but will be available for purchase after the tour.

The meetings and conference will be held at Nationwide Hotel and Conference Center. Room rates will be $152/night. Attendees may use this link to make reservations in your block if you would prefer to do so, rather than calling the Front Desk. BOOK HERE   The group code is 324342
