BATFN is an informal social network in the Bay Area broadly interested in tropical forest conservation and ecology. We gather monthly, typically for a happy hour beverage in the Peninsula area. The event is free and we provide snacks and drinks. Think Green Drinks but with a focus on forests.
Our goal is to foster peer-to-peer networking in a relaxed atmosphere where ideas, data, and collaboration flow freely. This is a great opportunity to connect with media, scientists, economists, foundations, activists, artists and many others thinking about these issues. Everyone is welcome! It is a great way to get in touch with other people working on similar interests or to learn more about current issues and initiatives in forest conservation.
This is your opportunity to make a suggestion for a future BATFN event. A few things to note before you get started:
+ BATFN has an operating budget of $0 so we can't pay for a venue or a speaker. Typically the host provides food and drinks, with BATFN members hopefully also chipping in.
+ BATFN is based in the San Francisco Bay Area, so please only suggest venues and speakers in the area
+ Final decisions on speakers, venues, and events will be made by the BATFN board
OK, time to get started.
