Innovations Seminar Series

About the Series

Forest Service R&D is bringing scientists from its field offices and other organizations to talk about innovative techniques in inventory, monitoring, and assessment (IM&A). You may attend the talks in person or through Live Meeting (see the seminar flyers below). They are intended to inspire “outside the box” thinking for effective, cost- efficient, and multi-purpose techniques to support Forest Service IM&A and related goals.
