But numerous challenges constrain management options, including dealing with serious and imminent forest health threats such as ash mortality from the emerald ash borer and tamarack mortality from the eastern larch beetle. In this three-day online symposium, we'll hear from researchers and practitioners as we dig into these issues, the status of the associated natural resources, and what we can do to ensure continued ecological integrity and productivity in these systems. Program Oct. 26: lowland conifer systems Oct. 27: ash-dominated wet forests Oct. 28: riparian forest systems Each session will include a series of short presentations with ample opportunity for open discussion in small and large groups. This will be as interactive and engaging a program as possible. Recordings of all presentations will be available to registrants. America/Chicago public
