Forest Ecosystem Monitoring Cooperative

2018 Forest Ecosystem Monitoring Cooperative Conference

Climate change continues to be a top threat facing the forests of the northeast and the people that depend on them. As temperatures warm and precipitation patterns shift, the cumulative responses of individual trees across the landscape will cascade to affect wildlife habitat, water quality, flood protection and economic values of forests. This year, the Forest Ecosystem Monitoring Cooperative Conference will focus on surveying the impacts of climate change on key forest ecosystem processes and services, with a focus on forests, wildlife and water.

This annual event provides an important opportunity for communication, exchange of ideas, and expanding collaboration around forest ecosystem management and monitoring in the region.

Who Should Attend

All policy makers, researchers, resource managers, students and other stakeholders who work or are interested in northeastern forested ecosystems.


$23 per person ($21 per person if you register as a group of 3 or more). Registration will open in late October.


Information on where to park at UVM is available here, and a map of parking areas can be found here. We request that attendees park in the Gutterson lot, a short 5 minute walk from the conference venue. Vehicles with Vermont state or federal license plates can park without a permit.

Continuing Education Credits

FEMC will apply for Continuing Forestry Education credits from the Society of American Foresters. Last year's conference earned 4.5 Category 1 credits. Once the program is set, we will update the number of credits available here.
