Proposals for online educational workshops for Thursday April 15th or the evenings of Friday April 16th and Saturday April 17th are welcome. Workshops are considered ticketed events, for which separate advanced registration is required by April 9. Workshop organizers may charge a participation fee to cover costs.
Proposals for "field" trips or other special events on Thursday April 15th are also welcome. A "field" trip for a virtual event could consist of a pre-recorded slide show or video presentation that documents a visit to a particular site or sites with a focus on examining some aspect(s) of the natural history (e.g.,taking photos or clips when visiting your favorite vernal pool and then assembling a narrated presentation from that). Organizers of such "field" trips would have until the week prior to the start of the conference to upload their recorded presentations.
The deadline for workshop, field trip, and special event proposals is February 24th.
To submit a proposal or if you have any suggestions or questions you would like to discuss, please contact us with the details.
Please note that if workshop, field trip, and special event organizers are planning on attending the other conference events, they will need to register for the conference.
