The 26th Annual North American Dendroecological Fieldweek (NADEF) will be held at Pack Forest in Eatonville, Washington, July 24th through August 1st. The North American Dendroecological Fieldweek (NADEF) provides an intensive learning experience in dendrochronology. Previous experience in field and laboratory-based tree-ring techniques is not required. Participants range from new initiates in the field to seasoned veterans with over 20 years or longer of experience. Group leaders of the fieldweek are among the top scientists in the various fields of global environmental change. Everybody that participates in the fieldweeks learns new things because the projects and locations are different every year.
Registration: Registration fees will be $1300 USD for students and $1500 USD for professionals. Students should send a photocopy of their student ID with their registration. Your registration fee includes registration, round-trip transportation between SeaTac and the field station, field excursions, room and board for the entire week.
