2022 NWFAEP Annual Environmental Symposium

lease join us at the 2022 Annual Environmental Symposium for a full day of learning, networking, and field activities. We have invited a diverse array of speakers to discuss various environmental subjects which we hope will pique your interest. Speakers from both the public and private sectors will be presenting on topics that include, but are not limited to, environmental justice, mitigation planning, sea level rise, regional food sustainability, and local projects. Additionally, you can participate in one of two field events. While on campus, we will provide guided tours of the nature trails or the university's community garden. We hope to see you all there!

Please select your lunch and field event preferences during registration.
