Plan to join us at the 2019 SEB meeting in Cincinnati, Ohio (June 2-6). The theme for the meeting will be, ”The Future of Forests: Perspectives from Indigenous People, Traditional Practices and Conservation.“ Invited speakers will include: Mike Hopkins (Brazilian National Institute of Amazonian Research), Mike Dockry (US Forest Service), Theresa Culley (University of Cincinnati), Jim Miller (Missouri Botanical Garden), Kathy Morrison (University of Pennsylvania), Robert Bye (National Autonomous University of Mexico) and Kat Anderson (University of California Davis). No doubt, a memorable DEB talk will be given by John Rashford at the Freedom Center overlooking the Ohio River.

Also there will be workshops on viticulture by Nick Dunning (UC) and iPhone video-making led by John De La Parra (Harvard). Lots of field trips are planned to exciting places such as Big Bone Lick, Fort Ancient, Sun Watch Village, the Edge of Appalachia, the Whitewater Shaker Village, the Cincinnati Garden Center and the world-famous Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden. Just for fun, there will be a pub crawl to several of the outstanding local microbreweries, a trip to the ball park to see the Reds play and a chance to take in a soccer match with the red-hot Football Club Cincinnati. Rooms will be available for very reasonable prices starting at $46/night. For a final teaser, Cincinnati was recently listed by the New York Times as one of the top 10 “must visit” places in THE WORLD!! Stay tuned for a call for workshops, travel awards, are more details in the coming months. Registration and abstract submission will open in February.
