Black Ash Symposium

November 5, 2014 - November 7, 2014

Sharing Traditional and Scientific Knowledge

Registration is now open for the Black Ash Symposium to be held at the University of Maine November 5th – 7th, 2014.

The unifying theme of the symposium will focus on the biology and ecology of black ash throughout North America. We will be bringing together researchers, state and national agencies, students, and tribal members to update our knowledge on a rare and rarely studied species whose populations are threatened by the emerald ash borer. By highlighting what we know, we will be able to clarify what important knowledge is needed to manage and sustain black ash in the landscape.

The event will be held at the Buchanan Alumni House (November 5th) and the George J. Mitchell Sustainability Center (November 7th) on the University of Maine campus. We will spend Thursday out in the field visiting local black ash stands in Maine.

If you would like to register for the symposium, please complete the registration form below no later than Monday, October 13th, 2014.
