CNPS 2019 Conference at the University of Washington a Resounding Success

The 25 annual NPA and 5th annual CNPS conference at the University of Washington was a resounding success with conference goers all having a fulfilling time. Some new and old faces appeared and it was great to see that the CNPS is alive and well. With a number of unusually sunny days, the conference was held in Alder Hall on the beautiful campus of the University of Washington with majestic buildings, amazingly large trees, and beautiful vistas of the mountain including a picture-perfect view of Mount Rainer.
