ScienceX Webinar Series

ScienceX logo

The SCIENCEx webinar series brings together scientists and land management experts from across U.S. Forest Service research stations and beyond to explore the latest science and best practices for addressing large natural resource challenges across the country.

These webinars will be primarily management focused, but with applicability for participants from across sectors. SCIENCEx will typically be organized as week-long webinar ‘blitzes’ around salient topics, allowing for deep dives into subtopics or dynamics within specific geographies.

ScienceX Webinars are eligible for the following continuing education credits:

  • Society of American Foresters - Certified Forester Education (SAF-CFE) 
  • The Wildlife Society (TWS) Continuing Education Credits
