The 12th North American Forest Ecology Workshop (NAFEW) will be held in Flagstaff, Arizona, USA, from June 23-27, 2019, at the Little America Hotel. In 2019, NAFEW will celebrate 25 years of bringing together diverse stakeholders from across Canada, Mexico, and the United States.

The theme of the 2019 workshop, Forests on the edge: forest ecology in rapidly changing conditions, reflects the growing concerns about all North American forests in a changing world.
