WPEF Virtual Annual Conference, September 16, 2020

In keeping with WPEF tradition, we have decided to hold our annual Science and Management Meeting in a virtual format on September 16, 2020. This virtual meeting will be in one of the same time slots as the H5II conference, which was postponed until October 5-7, 2021.

The science and management part of the conference starts at 1 pm on Wednesday, September 16, and ends at 4 pm. There is an hour break and then, starting at 5-7pm, we will have a virtual kegger hosted by Liz Davy when she willauction off items, conduct a very quick
members meeting, and provide the WPEF community a chance to socialize in this time of pandemic. It should be loads of fun, and Liz guarantees huge whitebark smiles for all.

The program of this web-based conference includes three hours of science and management talks on three topics: status of the National Whitebark Pine Restoration Plan, and climate change in high elevation ecosystems, and post-fire dynamics in upper subalpine forests. Experts in these fields are preparing exciting talks for the High 5 community.

This virtual conference is free to all, but we will be asking for donations during the meeting to cover costs.

Please put this one-of-a-kind event on your calendar!
