Summer of Science

Four Weeks of Summer, Sun, and Science

Management and Conservation Posters 

Presenters will be available for live interaction Wednesday, June 10, 11:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. EDT*

General comments can be left on the comment board next to the poster. 

*In support of #STRIKE4BLACKLIVES, we will offer an alternative/additional presentation time on Friday, June 12 from 4-5pm EDT. Presenters: please post a note on your comment board to let attendees know your availability. More information on the strike: https://www.particlesforjustice.org/strike-details. Committee meetings scheduled for that day should focus on anti-racist and inclusive initiatives.
