Event Details

We're pleased to announce that the November 2014 BATFN will take place from 6pm-8pm at the California Academy of Sciences, and will feature a talk given by Dr. Margaret (Meg) Lowman, Chief of Science and Sustainability at the California Academy of Sciences.

The focus for this event is Ethiopia, which is part of one of the more unusual forest regions of the planet. Come learn about how conservationists are working in this part of Africa, and come early to participate in a unique opportunity to join our speaker, "Canopy Meg" Lowman, for a short expedition into the treetops just outside the Cal Academy. Meg and her team of onsite canopy access experts will offer a short climb activity from 4-5:30 PM. You must wear sneakers or comfortable shoes, long pants, and come to the Business Entrance off Nancy Pelosi Drive. CAS will be providing food and drink.

 You must RSVP to attend and register for one of the following ticket types:

- RSVP to become an “arbornaut” with Meg Lohman at 4 pm, followed by the BATFN event 
- RSVP to attend the BATFN event only from 6-8 pm (optional: come watch tree-climbers at 4pm) 

You don't need to bring physical tickets, but your name must be registered via the EventBrite system.  RSVP soon since space is limited!

We hope to see you there!

Bay Area Tropical Forest Network

BATFN is an informal social network in the Bay Area broadly interested in tropical forest conservation and ecology. We gather monthly, typically for a happy hour beverage in the Peninsula area. The event is free and we provide snacks and drinks. Think Green Drinks but with a focus on forests.

Our goal is to foster peer-to-peer networking in a relaxed atmosphere where ideas, data, and collaboration flow freely. This is a great opportunity to connect with media, scientists, economists, foundations, activists, artists and many others thinking about these issues. Everyone is welcome! It is a great way to get in touch with other people working on similar interests or to learn more about current issues and initiatives in forest conservation.
