Biology, Conservation and Management of Natural Features Miniconference

The public is invited to attend the Biology, Conservation and Management of Natural Features Miniconference scheduled for Dec. 6th, 2017 from 1:00-5:00 PM at the Parkview Campus of WMU (aka BTR Park near Asylum Lake). This miniconference promises to be filled with interesting and diverse perspectives on remnant and restored plant communities, habitat restoration and related topics from an esteemed set of invited guest speakers. In addition, the end of the miniconference will feature short presentations by three student groups who have worked on remnant prairie, savanna and mesic forest restoration activities in Kalamazoo and will report on their findings. If you have an interest in native plant communities, this miniconference is for you!

We sincerely hope you will consider joining us for this event! Registration and parking are free but we do require that you RSVP by Dec. 1 so that adequate parking spaces, seating and refreshments can be arranged. A map is also attached that shows lot “P2” near Floyd Hall where you will be able to park on that day.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
