Seminar Series


On the 3rd Wednesday of every month we host a virtual Seminar Series from 9-10 AM, ET.  Each Seminar includes two short talks and time for Q&A.  This is a fantastic opportunity for members of our global network to meet in real-time to share their ForestGEO research. 

NEXT Seminar:  October 20, 2021 | 9:00-10:30 AM, EDT | register here  (*please note our special format and longer meeting time this month*)
