The Retro Running organization will hold an event in Pigeon Forge. The event has graciously chosen to support DLIA as their environmental organization for this particular event.
This is much more than just a foot race! See the details of this event by clicking this logo ...
There will be no 2016 ATBI Conference. Instead, DLIA will assist Great Smoky Mountains National Park in putting on another excellent Science Colloquium program to allow for park researchers to present their findings before colleagues and other interested attendees.
And ... attendance is FREE TO THE PUBLIC! Please send an email to Paul Super (as per below) to let him know that you are coming so that we make sure there is a seat for you.
ATBI scientists, as well as any and all other park researchers are encouraged to send talk proposals in to park Research Coordinator, Paul Super (paul_super at nps dot gov) by the close of business on Friday, January 29, 2016. Then, for those proposals that are accepted, abstracts will be due by the end of business on February 29, 2016. Plans are just starting to develop. So far the park has set a date, March 17, 2016, and a venue, The Park Vista Hotel, for this annual event.
