The Northwest Science Association is hosting their 88th annual meeting in Ashland, Oregon, beginning on the 29th of March, 2017. This conference is jointly sponsored by NWSA, Southern Oregon University, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and both Northwest Lichenologists and the California Lichen Society. With the support of two strong lichenological organizations, this will be an important event for western lichenologists. There will be lichen presentations throughout the conference, a lichen-specific symposium, and a workshop focused on biodiversity of white oak cryptogams across the Northwest.
