Monthly Meeting: April 7, FSL Room 20. Climate. Birds. Conservation Ethics. Hydrologic Connectivity.
9am - Science Hour
The Andrews Forest will host a review team from NSF in early August to review the LTER7 grant. To prepare for this, the midterm review presenters will deliver practice 10-minute talks in the science hours for March through June. Each talk will be followed by a 5 to 10-minute feedback session in which we hope the audience will provide suggestions about clarifying and refining the key stories and linking them to other LTER7 research. Thanks in advance for your participation and feedback!

Monthly meetings are used to share science, news, and opportunities related to the HJ Andrews Experimental Forest and Long-Term Ecological Research program. We start with a science hour and then move into program news and announcements. Anyone is welcome to attend. Monthly meetings are on the first Friday of the month during the academic year (upcoming: May 5, Jun 2) in Room 20 of the Forestry Sciences Lab, 3200 SW Jefferson Way.
