The Society for Conservation GIS will be holding its annual Holiday Party at WeWork in Midtown on December 20 from 6-8:30 pm. Maria Brown and her daughter are the Keynote Speakers on the work they have been doing in the Peruvian Amazon (bats) since 2012. This is a great chance to meet and network with fellow GIS conservationists. Some of the confirmed participants work for companies like USGS, Nature Conservancy, Environmental Defense Fund, NYC Parks and NYC Department of Environmental Protection, not to mention Esri and academia. This Chapter of SCGIS covers southern NY and NJ. You can register through this Eventbrite link. Registration closes 48 hours before the event.
Pizza will be served and it’s a “Bring your own Beverage” event with many people also bringing a holiday dessert to share with the group!
