    Annual general meeting (March 27-30, 2018, Olympia, Washington at Evergreen State College). We are meeting with the Northwest Scientific Association (NWSA). Registration is through NWSA. The meeting has talks, a workshop, and one or more field trips. See photos from past meetings.

    Field Trips: Bryophytes, Lichens and Ecosystem Ecology of Acidic Peatlands. The Olympia area has diverse, excellent lichen habitats nearby and a mild climate, compared to much of the Pacific Northwest at this date. We will also have a mini-foray to the forest and beaches of Evergreen's 1000 acre campus.

    Share your research on lichens, mosses, and fungi with an oral or poster presentation!  Abstracts for poster and oral presentations are due this winter; see the Call for Abstracts. Please share what you have been up to, or just come to absorb.

    General Schedule

    The exact schedule has not yet been posted, but there will be evening socials, plenary sessions, technical sessions, poster sessions, workshop and field trips.

    Future years: We are eager to have YOU help to organize the meeting. The meeting is arranged on a year-by-year basis, depending on the location of the NWSA meeting. This usually happens in mid to late March. The annual meeting typically has four components: talks that present ongoing or completed research (we try to keep this as casual and informal as possible); a workshop on a particular topic, genus, or area; field trips to some local spots of interest; and evening socializing, usually at a local restaurant.
