Seminar Schedule Fall 2016

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). No parking permit is needed for any vehicle with state, federal, or tribal license plates. Other persons (except students) can get a free permit from the School of Forestry administrative office prior to the 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.
