Greetings Soil Ecologists!
If you didn’t get this message yesterday through the list-serv, either check your Junk/Clutter settings or sign up for the list-serv here. Please pass this along to anybody we may have missed.
We haven’t met in person for some time and are very much looking forward to seeing one another again! We hope everybody enjoys safe travels to Montreal and back, after we make it through the last week of preparations. This information should help you get ready:
With the help of some plucky students (thank you!!) we have assembled another Soil Ecologist’s Guide to ESA 2022. Follow the link for details.
Soil Ecology will hold a joint mixer with the Biogeosciences Section on-site on Monday evening. Come for hors d’oeuvres and non-alcoholic beverages (plus cash bar) and to meet our 2022 Student Travel Award winners and Deborah Neher Career Award winner!
The Soil Ecology Section business meeting will be Wednesday at Noon on-site and with remote access for anyone who cannot make it in-person. See the Soil Ecology @ ESA 2022 page (link) for the Zoom access information.
Finally, please come visit us and your Student Travel Award winners at the Soil Ecology Section Booth during the poster sessions! You’ll find ***NEW*** swag and t-shirts, updated for 2022 with the winning design from our community competition submitted by Brianna Almieda, and new slogan “We Dig It!”.
ESA is also looking for volunteers to help support student professional development by reviewing resumes or participating in mock interviews: https://www.esa.org/montreal2022/career-central/. And, if you are interested in participating in a BioBlitz competition during the meeting, sign up here: https://www.esa.org/montreal2022/2022-international-biodiversity-championship/.
See you soon!
