2018 Colorado Section Fall Workshop Report and Wrap Up

Thank you to everyone who helped make the 2018 Colorado Section Fall Workshop a success; from the Planning Committee to the speakers, attendees, and the live streaming by Brian Allmer with Barn Media. We had a great turnout with 75 people in attendance. I believe there are photos on Facebook so check out the CSSRM page. 

 There were a total of 28 students from four different colleges: Colorado Community College, Colorado Mesa University, Colorado State University and Southern Utah University. Students from CSU and SUU took practice tests in Plant ID & URME before the main event in Minneapolis. Good luck to all of them! 

 Everyone who toured the Palisade Insectary seemed to enjoy it.  I know I did! If you missed the tour, Dr. Dan Bean said folks are welcome anytime. Contact him at
