Each spring semester, the Department of Forest and Rangeland Stewardship hosts a course for students in which speakers present their compelling research. The interdisciplinary talks also include speakers invited by the Department of Ecosystem Science & Sustainability and the Graduate Degree Program in Ecology, and seminars are open to interested visitors.
For 2023, the theme for the seminars is “Sustaining Socio-Ecological systems into the Future: Adapting our Natural Resource Management to a Changing Climate”
Each talk is planned to be in person with a remote viewing option and recordings will be made available after the event if the speaker permits. Please reach out via email for a virtual link in advance of the talk.
