Monument Research Symposium

  • SOU Science Auditorium (map)

Join us on Thursday, March 14, 7-9PM at the SOU Science Auditorium for the annual Monument Research Symposium hosted by Friends of the Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument. Come learn about recently conducted fieldwork within the Monument from both students and professional scientists. Attendees can park on the street around the Science Auditorium, or pay for parking in the SOU lots. Please note the closest pay meter is located on Mountain Street, down the hill from the auditorium.

We will be conducting a raffle to raise funds for the Friends Research Fund, a grant program that supports student research in the Monument. Refreshment will be served. We hope to see you there!
