Share Climbing Safety Case Studies, Tree ID and Reception

Event Details

The PNW-ISA/ UW Climbing Safety Case Studies and Reception will be an opportunity for climbers to learn through past experiences, earn CEUs, and network with other climbers. Philip Kelley and Brian French will present industry data and share with us their own climbing safety experiences. The presentations will end with a Q & A session and networking opportunity.

Between the presentations and reception there will be a Tree ID scavenger hunt designed by fellow arborist Jessica Farmer (UW Botanic Gardens Adult Ed. Supervisor). The ID activity will be next to the reception and focus on the tree collection at the Washington Park Arboretum. Participants earn 1 CEU for completing the Tree ID scavenger hunt.

After the scavenger hunt we will gather again in the main hall for a reception where participants can collect and discuss climbing safety. The reception is optional and not required to earn the 3 CEUs. However, we hope you consider staying to build connections in the community. Heavy appetizers and beverage options will be available.

This workshop is hosted as a partnership between PNW-ISA and UW Botanic Gardens.
