The program of every ESA Annual Meeting since the 1999 gathering in Spokane, Washington has included a Public Plenary featuring a noted speaker in the sciences, politics, or literature. The inspiration of the ESA Public Affairs Committee, the Public Plenary offers an opportunity for the local public to participate in the annual science conference.
Pacific Northwest Writers and Poets Evening
Another free event open to the public will feature an opportunity to hear noted authors and poets Robin Cody, Robert Michael Pyle, Kathleen Dean Moore, and Liz Woody who are inspired by and write about the natural environment in the Pacific Northwest. The event will be held on Tuesday, August 3, 7:30 PM 10 PM at the OCC.
For more information about these events, and other ESA Annual Meeting activities, visit the ESA meeting homepage at: http://www.esa.org/portland. The theme for the meeting is "Lessons of Lewis and Clark: Ecological Exploration of Inhabited Landscapes." Close to 4,000 scientists are expected to attend the five-and-a-half day meeting.
