Description

**REGISTRATION FOR THE 2018 WA BOTANICAL SYMPOSIUM IS NOW CLOSED. AT THE DOOR REGISTRATIONS ACCEPTED. A LIMITED NUMBER OF EXTRA LUNCHES WILL BE AVAILABLE FOR AT THE DOOR REGISTRATIONS.**

An extensive network of professional, academic, and amateur botanists are actively engaged in the conservation, management, and study of Washington’s diverse flora. Their expertise ranges from how best to manage biodiversity, to understanding climate change impacts on plant communities, to naming and classifying the flora’s rare, common, and invasive elements. Invited speakers and poster presentations will share new insights and discoveries about these topics and more. Participants from throughout Washington and adjacent areas will have the opportunity to exchange ideas with colleagues within and across disciplines.

*** NEW OPTION ***  Remote attendance: This year we will be providing the opportunity to remotely attend the Washington Botanical Symposium via web conferencing. Our goal is to provide an environmentally-friendly alternative to long-distance travel and increase access to the conference for remote participants who would otherwise not be able to attend. Participants who register for remote attendance will be sent log-in instructions via email one day prior to the symposium.
Student scholarships: The University of Washington Herbarium, Burke Museum, and University of Washington Botanic Gardens are offering a limited number of scholarships for current, full-time students to attend the Washington Botanical Symposium at no charge. To be considered for a scholarship, email urbhort@uw.edu, with two paragraphs about your interest in the symposium and a picture/copy of your current student ID. Applications will be considered in the order in which they are received.

Poster session: Attendees are invited to share recent work during the poster session for no additional charge.
