    Annual general meeting (March 15-18, 2022, Arcata, California at Humboldt State University. We are meeting with the Northwest Scientific Association (NWSA) AND, as a special treat, the California Lichen Society (CALS). Registration for the NWL meeting is through NWSA. The meeting has talks, a workshop, and one or more field trips. See photos from past meetings. For information on giving a talk or poster and for the general schedule, check here later for the Call for Abstracts. Note that the CALS meeting will include a field trip, potluck dinner, and the traditional birthday party, so please join CALS if you're not a member and plan to stay through the 18th (usually we disband by about 1 pm so people can drive home). NWSA Save the Date announcement. Schedule and details are forthcoming...

    Support for students. For 2022 we are offering 3, $100 gifts for students (undergraduate or graduate) travelling to present in the lichen-bryophyte session at the NWL/NWSA meeting. First priority will be given to those giving oral presentations, second priority to poster presentations. Within those groups, awards will be given in the order that abstracts were received. Also, please check for opportunities with your college or university -- most of those have grants for student travel to meetings.

    Field trips: We will have at least two field trips near Arcata. A schedule and summary of lichen activities for the meeting are forthcoming.

    Workshop: Time and Subject TBA.

    Lodging: Check here later for suggestions on where to stay. There is often a place with a special conference rate.

    Full meeting details will appear at:

    Lichenology schedule and locations: schedule will be developed as the time approaches and posted here.

    Future years: We are eager to have YOU help to organize the lichen part of the annual 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.
