LONG ISLAND NATURAL HISTORY CONFERENCE: NEW & EXPANDED FORMAT FOR 2015
Friday and Saturday, March 20-21, 2015 (9 a.m. – 5 p.m.)
Field Trips on Sunday, March 22, 2015
The third Long Island Natural History Conference will take place Friday and Saturday, March 20-21, 2015 in the Berkner auditorium at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Brookhaven National Laboratory in Upton, NY.
Realizing that conference attendance increased 75% over the first two years, the steering committee decided to modify the conference format. This new format will accommodate naturalists and educators who are unable to attend a weekday conference. To further encourage teachers to attend, we have made arrangements for educators to receive professional development points for attending the conference. Our 2015 conference will include a poster session to encourage participation among students doing research on Long Island’s flora and fauna. (Read the full release here.)
