May 5th – 6th 2017: The 21st Century Field Naturalist Symposium
What skills do Field Naturalists and Ecological Planners need to solve the conservation challenges of today and of the future? What current issues in conservation are we uniquely positioned to address?
Field Naturalists, Ecological Planners, and conservation professionals near and far are converging to connect, collaborate, and celebrate. Friday features presentations and problem-solving around modern conservation topics, including the past and future role of the Field Naturalist and Ecological Planning Programs. The gathering continues with Friday afternoon field excursions and Saturday festivities to honor retiring Professor Deane Wang.
