Webinar Series - Friday's Findings

Release Date:

 

Friday's Findings is a public webinar series hosted by the USGS Ecosystems Mission Area.  Our webinars are typically the first Friday of each month at 2 p.m. eastern time. These half hour webinars are meant to provide listeners an overview of the science topic and chance to ask questions. We hope to offer our audience an opportunity to discover the Ecosystems science capacity within the USGS.
