The Longwood Graduate Symposium, The Panda and the Public Garden: Reimaging our Conservation Message, is less than one month away, and we are busy as bees pulling together the last details of what will be a most enjoyable symposium experience – true to the Longwood tradition.
The Guest Relations Committee is dedicated to creating a pleasant and accommodating guest experience for our symposium registrants, so that you may enjoy the lecture sessions to the fullest. This includes organizing a delicious menu for the day, prepared by Longwood’s in-house catering services. Coffee and baked goods will be available when registration opens at 8 am – just in case you do not have time to grab breakfast at home. A lunch buffet will be offered at mid-day, followed by a lovely spread of sweet treats and Longwood’s famous pretzel twists at the afternoon break. Refreshments will be offered after the final lecture, so please stay for lemonade and a chat with the speakers and guests.
In keeping with the Longwood Graduate Program’s commitment to sustainability, the Guest Relations Committee has made an effort to reduce waste and use of non-recyclable materials. Your registration packet has been cleverly designed by Fellow Nate Tschaenn to be in a booklet format printed on FSC paper. The booklet approach will reduce the amount of paper needed to produce the packet compared to previous years. Compostable cutlery and dishware will be used for food service and later sent through Longwood’s composting system.
If you have not yet registered, please do so soon! Click here to be directed to our quick and easy online registration system.
And if you are traveling from afar and need a place to stay, the Guest Relations Committee has arranged for discounted rooms at the Hilton Garden Inn Kennett Square for registrants. Please book by February 16th to reserve your room. Click here to be directed to the special reservation page.
We look forward to seeing you there!
