You are invited to participate in the 21st Annual Front Range Student Ecology Symposium at Colorado State University, February 24th-25th, 2015! Organized by students, for students, this event provides a supportive atmosphere for undergraduate and graduate students alike to present their current and future projects in any stage of development. The symposium is modeled after a professional society meeting and will also include guest speakers, networking and socializing opportunities, a photo contest and a catered awards reception with prizes.
We are pleased to announce that the keynote speaker this year will be Dr. Diane Pataki, Biology Professor at The University of Utah in Salt Lake City. Her recent work looks into the immediate and long-term challenges to sustaining urban and natural ecosystems based on a changing climate and population pressure.
If you would like to participate in the symposium, please submit an abstract (~200 words) summarizing your project or a photo entry to the FRSES website by 5pm on Friday January 23rd, 2015. The theme for this year is “From Mountains to Main Street,” but any of your related work in ecology is welcome. Check out our website homepage or facebook page to see more details. Feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have further questions.
