SER-NW Announcement!

Want some practice presenting your research? Want to network with professionals in your field?
Society for Ecological Restoration Northwest (SER NW) is putting on a Graduate Student Colloquium February 26 & 27 (possibly 25th too). The event shall feature the works of current graduate students who are in some fashion connected to the restoration field. Thus, these can be persons from traditional science-based research programs, as well as those who interface with restoration ecology in a variety of ways (administrative, social, economic, political, cultural, etc). We are seeking six to nine students for the program. Each student shall have 20 minutes for presentation of slides and five minutes for audience Q&A. Three students shall present per day, with the program running from about 9 AM to 10:30 AM PDT per day.

About this webinar

SER recently updated its student membership category to acknowledge the changing workforce and diversity of members within the Society. We have expanded and renamed this category to Emerging Professionals in order to extend the lower cost student memberships to include individuals early in their ecological restoration career, but already out of school.

In addition, SER is establishing a new Students and Emerging Professionals (SEP) Committee and online community networking group to facilitate dialogue that identifies, understands and responds to the unique needs of this segment within our community.
