Abstract and Bios: 2016 Abstract and Bios

It is with great pleasure we announce the 3rd annual conference of the Southern Rockies Seed Network. The more we collect and grow plant materials together, the more we realize there is much more to learn. Greater needs to partner. There are broader efforts to connect with. More resources needed. New resources available. With all this in mind, we realize this local conference is essential to advancing our common work.

The 2016 conference will include three tracks: Science, Practice, and Policy. Each track will include a regional or national topic presenter, followed by 2-3 local experts in their field. Each track will end with a panel discussion, where participants have an opportunity to engage in in-depth discussions with the presenters.

The official event flyer is available here, which you are free to circulate widely.
