LTER Community Call: Field Safety Discussion

June 26, 2024 @ 9:00 am-10:00 am –

With another field season starting/just underway, we invite the LTER community to join us for an interactive discussion on field safety. Molly Phillips, the LTER Inclusion and Access Coordinator and Cassandra Miller, a PhD student at the University of NM and Sevilleta LTER, will facilitate the session, but we will be tapping into our collective wisdom by posing a series of prompts to engage listeners to share wins, challenges, tips, and resources!

Join us on Wednesday, June 26th at 9 a.m. Pacific Time (10 a.m. MT / 11 a.m. CT / Noon ET) to share your knowledge and experience and learn from others as we all strive to keep ourselves and others safe while having a productive and fun time in the field!


  • What is the best advice you were ever given for staying safe in the field?
  • What resources have you found indispensable for taking care of xyz in the field?
  • What is a memorable way that a mentor has supported you during field season?
