Late April or early May 2011
NWL annual general meeting: We usually meet with the Northwest Scientific Association (NWSA) every spring. In 2011 we plan to meet on our own. Each year we have also had a workshop and a field trip (about 1 in 3 involving snow). See photos from past meetings. We are eager to have YOU help to organize the meeting. The meeting is arranged on a year-by-year basis, depending on the location of the Northwest Scientific Association meeting. This always happens in mid to late March. See upcoming events for information on the coming meeting. The annual meeting typically has four components: talks that present ongoing or completed research (we try to keep this as casual and informal as possible); a workshop on a particular topic, genus, or area; field trips to some local spots of interest; and evening socializing, usually at a local restaurant.
