Shaping Forests: Action in a Changing World
The 7th North American Forest Insect Work Conference will be held along the North Shore of Lake Superior in Duluth, MN from May 25–28, 2021!
Duluth is home to the Port of Duluth-Superior, also known as the Cargo Capital of the Great Lakes. Being a major hub of national and international cargo transport, a major tourist destination, and a hotbed of climate change impacts, Duluth is the perfect host city for our event themed “Shaping Forests: Action in a Changing World”. The future of forest entomology will be shaped by cooperation and collaboration among researchers and educators from all professional and personal backgrounds. Therefore, it is our hope that this meeting will affect positive change in the field of forest entomology and beyond.
