The Event

FRSES is a student-run symposium that provides an opportunity for Front Range students doing research in ecology to showcase their work and network in a supportive peer environment. FRSES began in 1994 and has taken place annually since.

The Organizers

Each year, graduate students at Colorado State University volunteer their time to organize the multi-day, regional symposium for early-career ecologists.
