Congressional Exhibits

Since 1998, ESA has participated in a science exhibition held on Capitol Hill which showcases research and education projects made possible by funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF). Sponsored by the Coalition for National Science Funding, the annual event draws hundreds of congressional staff as well as several Members of Congress and top NSF officials.

Over the years, ESA exhibitors have showcased the Long Term Ecological Research Network, science education projects, stream restoration, African ecosystems, and climate change. Most recently, ESA sponsored Travis Huxman (University of Arizona) whose NSF-funded work includes the consequences of climate change on southwestern ecosystems.
