This symposium is funded by the Michael & Caroline Huber Fund for Pinelands Science and Policy.
This fund was created in 2019 with an initial gift from Robert and Joan Rechnitz in honor Mike Huber, PPA’s beloved founding board chairman who passed away in 2009, and Caroline, who remains a great supporter of our work. This fund is dedicated to paying the costs of holding symposia, lectures and workshops that meld good science with good policy, since we can only get the policy right if we understand the causes of problems facing the Pinelands. With the Huber Fund, PPA can now bring experts from around the continent to participate in vital policy discussions.
