A Poster and Tools Networking Session will be held on Wednesday afternoon. This session is intended for students, researchers, managers, and partners to present posters depicting current research findings and partner resources, and to share management-relevant tools.
We have organized a field trip on Friday, Nov. 15 to the Barataria Preserve in nearby Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve, in conjunction with NPS scientists and using local swamp tour boats. We’ll be able to experience some of the 23,000 acre preserve that showcases Louisiana’s wetlands, including bayous, swamps, marshes, and forests, and to learn about climate impacts and research. We’ll leave at 11:15 am and return to the hotel by 2:45 pm to accommodate evening travel. Cost of the field trip is $38.85 (including round-trip transportation from hotel) or $19.95 without ground transportation. In addition, there is a no-cost extension to the boat tour, which includes climate-related discussion with NPS scientists at the Barataria Preserve Visitor Center plus guided interpretive trail walk (transportation not provided). Get more details, register, and pay for the field trip.
