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, from 9 AM - 11 AM.  The next few meetings will be December 7, January 11 (not the first Friday, to work around the holiday), February 1.
