Revealing a changing forested landscape: Where we have come from, what we have learned, and what's next in long-term ecosystem monitoring.

Virtual Event Thursday, December 17, 2020 - Friday, December 18, 2020

Agenda

The Monitoring Cooperative is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year! The Annual Conference will be held as a virtual meeting. While this may be a change of venue, it is still being planned as an exciting opportunity to engage with community members from across the network about monitoring initiatives, gain insight into the changes being observed in northeastern ecosystems, and share innovative methods and tools to advance the science. We are still developing the agenda, so please check back, and sign up to receive updates.
