Seminar Schedule Spring 2015

All seminars are 4:00 to 5:00 PM in Room 017 of the Southwest Forest Science Complex (Building 82) on the campus of Northern Arizona University (campus map). A reception for the speaker with food and refreshments precedes the seminar in the lounge in front of the seminar room (3:30-4:00 PM). If you would like to schedule an appointment with a speaker, please contact the student host.
No parking permit is needed for a vehicle with state, federal, or tribal license plates. Other individuals can get a free permit from the School of Forestry main office during the 30-minute reception before each seminar. Emailing the student host with your name, phone number, vehicle type and plate state and ID prior to the seminar will expedite the process of obtaining a parking permit.
