NEON's community helps guide how we grow. Join us!
Help build the future of ecology
There are many ways to be a part of NEON's diverse community. We host and participate in many events, many of which are free and open to the community. These include field site tours and webinars, hour- to week-long workshops, and presentations at national and international conferences. We form partnerships with research and educational networks, as well as with laboratories and data repositories. Our work is also assisted by over 20 volunteer-based technical working groups that review our data and practices and help us stay current with current needs and practices in ecological research. There are many ways to participate, and we welcome you!
