The SoE Student Committee invites you to join fellow students for a fun night out at Urban Chestnut in the vibrant Grove neighborhood of St. Louis! Urban Chestnut is a local brewery and bierhall that offers a wide selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, and even has a full kitchen, so there will be something for everyone to enjoy. A shuttle will be available at the beginning and end of the event. From Urban Chestnut, it is a short walk to other nightlife spots for students who want to see more of what St. Louis has to offer.

Student Mentor Lunch

Date: Friday April 26
Time: 12:15–13:15
Location: Meeting Room

Students are invited to have lunch with established ethnobiologists for networking and wisdom during our lunch break on Fri Apr 26. No pre-registration required. Lunch order form is coming soon.


We have reached capacity for volunteers so Volunteer registration is now closed. Thank you to everyone who registered. The conference organizers will be in touch with confirmation of your volunteer status and information on next steps.

Support for the conference can take many forms, from front desk support to AV/video management. Volunteers are encouraged to share ideas and skills for their volunteer hours—for example, if you speak another language, or have videography skills, please note these!

In exchange for 8 hours of service, volunteers’ registration fee is covered. This does not include additional workshops, field trips, or the banquet. Volunteers will have the flexibility to present research, attend sessions, and engage in social events.

Approximately one month before the conference, a short onboarding meeting will be conducted to briefly review the schedule and facilities of the 2024 conference in St. Louis, and outline schedules

People who register to volunteer at the conference for a minimum of 8 hours AND who have a membership with the Society valid through April 27, 2024, will be able to access the Abstract Submission form after submitting the Volunteer Registration form.
