Understanding Plant-Herbivore Interactions with Dr. Fred Provenzag

Unfortunately, we must cancel all of the events (Public Events and Agent Trainings) for the "Understanding Plant-Herbivore Interactions with Dr. Fred Provenza” seminar series that we planned to do in September.

Dr. Provenza recently had an unexpected and very invasive surgery. Dr. Provenza is recovering well. In fact, we all initially thought he may still be able to manage to continue. However, in the interest of promoting his continued recovery and minimizing the risks of complications, we all have agreed that we will cancel these events.

At this point, it is unclear if we will be able to reschedule for sometime in the future. Dr. Provenza is expected to make a full recovery, but the funding providing for this event via USDA-NRCS expires at the end of September. In light of the events, an extension on that grant has been filed, but we do not know yet if we will be able to reschedule. Given all of the events scheduled for the remainder of 2014 through early April 2015, it will at least be sometime mid-year next year before we reschedule.

I’m very sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused you, and we all regret that we cannot do these meetings at this time. I’m sure you all will join me in hoping for Dr. Provenza’s speedy recovery.
