Symposium contests

  • Self-collected California macro specimen
  • Self-collected California micro specimen
  • Self-collected in the past year, any locality, macro specimen
  • Self-collected in the past year, any locality, micro specimen

Remember to make your Symposium Hotel Reservations

In the past, we’ve had a few people show up to the symposium at the Kelso Red Lion without a reservation, so I’ll remind everyone that you are advised to get a reservation in advance. The hotel has sold out in the past, so sooner is probably better than later!

We do have a special rate at the Red Lion, but the deadline for that has passed.  Fortunately, Expedia is currently running a special at about the same discount: Expedia: Red Lion Kelso

You can also call the hotel at 360-578-4017.
