Coming up: LENS workshop

The Landscape Exchange Network for Socio-environmental systems (LENS) will have its first workshop in May. LENS is an NSF Research Coordination Network that hopes to support research that integrates the high-resolution remotely sensed data from the NEON Aerial Observation Platform to address socio-environmental research questions. If you want to learn more about LENS visit our website and consider subscribing to our newsletter.

The first LENS workshop will be held at SESYNC in Annapolis, MD, USA from 4–6 May 2022.vRegistration is now closed, but we’ll be posting parts of the event to our website. The workshop will allow participants to take a deep dive into translational ecology, identify data and methods relevant to socio-environmental systems, all while networking and sharing their passion for the interaction between the natural and social worlds.

Coming soon: the International Seagrass Biology Workshop

The 14th International Seagrass Biology Workshop and 2022 World Seagrass Conference will be held at The Graduate Annapolis Hotel in Annapolis, MD, USA from 7–12 August 2022.

This biennial event is the only international meeting tailored specifically to seagrass scientists, professionals, and students.
