Xerces Events

Due to the coronavirus, we will not be holding or participating in any in-person events during the pandemic. We will resume in-person events as soon as it is safe and appropriate. In the meantime, we are committed to presenting as many events online as we can, including a new series of Xerces-hosted webinars. (Webinars will be close captioned and recordings added to our YouTube channel.)


The list of events on this page will be updated regularly. You can also find updates on social media and via our e-newsletter. If you have questions, please contact Liz Robertson at [email protected]


Please note that we are still accepting in-person speaker requests for 2021 events, although this may change depending on public health guidance. In the meantime, we can provide talks through platforms such as Zoom and Google Hangouts. Please fill out our speaker request form here. For questions regarding the speaker request form contact Rachel Dunham at [email protected]

This year marks Xerces' 50th anniversary. It is only because of all of you and your steadfast partnership and support of our mission that we have reached this significant milestone. Please join us for a special online event to celebrate this important moment in Xerces' history. Together with staff, board, and special guests, including Xerces' founder Robert Michael Pyle, we will toast to the past 50 years and cheers to the future. We hope to see you there!
