Building Community Partnerships

The Rhododendron Research Network (R-RN) is pleased to present its Virtual Connections Series. This online series seeks to bring people together from all over the globe and from all walks of life to "Build Community Partnerships" in Rhododendron research. Whether you are currently a Rhododendron researcher, a scientist considering Rhododendron research, a community-based researcher, or a gardener who loves to learn all you can about your plants, we hope to expand your network, knowledge and your imagination.

MEETING DESCRIPTION: This meeting will focus on sharing the latest research findings and empowering community-based science projects, including virtual plant collections tours, short 15-minute talks giving an overview of research areas in Rhododendron, and Roundtable Q&A where we will discuss the future of R-RN community-based research initiatives. The meeting will wrap up with a Plenary Lecture and Roundtables that speak to our theme of "Empowering Community Participation".
