High-Elevation, Five-Needle White Pines: Science and Management Webinar Series (2022–2023)

The “High-Elevation, Five-Needle White Pines: Science and Management Webinar Series” occurs the third Tuesday of each month from 12–1 p.m. Mountain Time during the academic year. All webinars are held by Zoom and are free and open to the public. This year’s talks will cover a range of topics on high-five pines, including genetic resistance to white pine blister rust, restoration projects and treatments, trends in Clark’s nutcracker distribution, cultural significance of whitebark pine, and using advanced technologies to improve monitoring methods. You can register for the entire monthly series, and the Zoom link will be the same each month. Webinar recordings are archived on our Whitebark Flix YouTube channel.

About the Webinar Series

The monthly webinar series was designed to share scientific findings and management initiatives on whitebark pine and other high-elevation, five-needle white pines in the U.S. and Canada, while fostering communications among scientists and land managers working on these species. It is coordinated by WPEF board members Cara Nelson and Danielle Ulrich, along with an outstanding team of graduate students. Contact the webinar organizers at [email protected] with any questions.
