Please join us for our Science-i Global Webinar
(Globinar) Series 2022 “Empower the Under-Represented in Forest Science.”

There are two major benefits of participating in this year’s

1) Converse and collaborate
with our distinguished guest speakers

2) Coauthor a whitepaper
entitled ‘Empower the Under-Represented in Forest Science,‘ to be
published in a top academic journal.

All events@10:00-11:30am EST (4:00-5:30pm CET)
