The Society is sponsoring the 2015 conference, “Born to Burn,” to be held May 28–31 in Tallahassee. The conference will be held in the Downtown Tallahassee Market area. Program days are at the Aloft Hotel on Friday and the Challenger Learning Center (CLC) on Saturday, with evening venues at the Capital Building, Wakulla Springs State Park and Tall Timbers Research Station. The hotel for the conference will be the Aloft, located a few blocks from the Downtown MarketPlace and an easy walk to the CLC on Saturday. Field trips and workshops are Thursday and Sunday and will leave from the Aloft parking lot. Speakers and workshops will be available on Friday and Saturday. FNPS members of chapters in Northwest Florida will assist with the conference to promote the mission of FNPS.
Vendors and exhibitors will have two options for tabling. The Tallahassee MarketPlace has been hosting and open market and vendors at the Chain of Parks, which is located between the Aloft Hotel and the Challenger Learning Center. So vendors may sell or exhibit in the park for a mere $30 per 10' x 10' tent on Saturday. Alternatively, traditional space is available at Aloft on Friday or at the Challenger Learning Center on Saturday. These indoor spaces are available for the price of conference admission.
