We are excited to announce the return of the Missoula Restoration Ecology Pub Talk series this spring! This is a joint effort with the Society for Ecological Restoration Northwest Chapter but you do not have to be a member to attend. The talks are open to anyone interested in ecological restoration and the intent is to share ideas and network with others working, researching or studying in the field. For those that have never attended a talk, the general format is to have a speaker talk about a designated topic for 30 minutes or so, followed by a group discussion on the topic, and then networking/socializing after.
See below for the list of dates and speakers/topics. Make sure to mark your calendars and we will send out reminders before each talk. Hope to see you there!
