Cal-IPC Symposium

Cal-IPC Symposium Riverside 2019 Header

Save the date! Oct. 15-18, 2019 in Riverside

Join us for another gathering of colleagues from across the state to network, learn, and celebrate our hard work. We’re meeting at the Riverside Convention Center. Located in downtown Riverside, it’s only steps away from shops and restaurants. Registration opens in spring. Keep checking this page for updates.

Thank you to the nearly 450 land managers, researchers, and conservationists that joined us for the 27th annual Cal-IPC Symposium in Monterey! Stewarding biological diversity is inherent in Cal-IPC’s mission. Protecting cultural and intellectual diversity is important to our success as well. The 2018 Cal-IPC Symposium explored the ways our work spans these areas, with the theme “BioDiversity: Expanding Our Vision.” View the program – presentations will be posted soon.

Symposium Sponsorship

Symposium sponsors connect to California’s natural resource management community. Sponsors receive recognition throughout the event, including a dedicated exhibit and poster session to engage with attendees. Thank you to the 2018 sponsors who made our event a success!

Information for Presenters

The Call for Abstracts will open in April. We look forward to sharing your work with California stewardship colleagues.

Symposium Lodging & Travel

We have arranged for room blocks at two hotels in Riverside. There are a limited number of rooms available at the elegant Mission Inn Hotel and Spa, a national historic landmark. Built in 1876 in the grand style of a Spanish Mission, the hotel rooms have unique architectural pieces such as fireplaces, window seats, built in cabinets, and small reading nooks. Additional rooms are available for a group rate at the Hyatt Place. Both hotels are only a block away from the Riverside Convention Center. Codes and information on how to reserve at the group rate will be added to our website soon.

Cal-IPC Awards

Symposium Raffle & Auction

There were great items up for grabs at the silent auction & raffle in 2018! Thanks to the generosity of our attendees, we raised $13,000 for the Cal-IPC general fund. We look forward to another lively event in 2019.

Cal-IPC’s Annual Photo Contest

The Annual Photo Contest is a great way to share your field work, and helps Cal-IPC tell the story of invasive plants and weed management. Keep taking pictures – maybe you’ll win next year!
