This is the final update prior to the *30 April early 
registration/abstract deadline* for the *Digital Data in Biodiversity 
Research* conference, to be held at UC Berkeley, 4-6 June 2018. Those 
desiring to take advantage of the economy housing option or submit an 
abstract for a poster, oral presentation, or discussion session must 
register by end of day Eastern time on the early registration deadline. 
Others may register as late as 15 May, though we *may close registration 
even earlier if we reach capacity*.

*NEW WEDNESDAY FIELD TRIP*: Cal Academy is offering space for 20 people 
to do tours in two groups of 10 each. Tours will involve two scientific 
collections and an aquarium tour for each group, which will take about 2 
hours, after which participants will be invited to explore the public 
floor including catching a planetarium show. If you have already 
registered and want to take advantage of this opportunity, please email 
me ([log in to unmask]) to indicate your interest and I’ll put you on 
the list. Those who have not registered can select this option on the 
registration form. First come, first served. Transportation to Cal 
Academy is not provided.

If you want to participate in the *Wednesday field trip to Pt. Reyes 
National Seashore*
