We still have a few openings this year, so we will be able to take onsite registrations! Lodging is still available in the Men's Lodge, Gerhard Cabin, and the campground. Please see the conference registration packet for information about registration and lodging costs.
We are very excited to have Mary Ellen Hannibal join us as the 2017 conference keynote speaker! After writing for literary magazines and the corporate world, Ms. Hannibal has become a well respected freelance science writer. An author of five book, her most recent book, Citizen Science: Searching for Heroes and Hope in the Age of Extinction, focuses on the role that citizen science can play in furthering science and helping us conserve the natural world. Join us for our keynote address to hear Ms. Hannibal discuss her personal foray into the world of citizen science and the role she sees this form of science playing in the future of our world.
The full conference schedule is currently available! You can view the conference program booklet or a two page condensed schedule. Want to help us save paper? We'll have a limited number of printed packets and a pile of condensed schedules available at the conference registration table, but you can download the files to your phone before you come instead. Please note that Agape has limited WiFi access in the Woodlands Center only, so downloading the files before you arrive is recommended.
