Fall Symposium 2023

The NPSOT 2023 Fall Symposium is coming to Nacogdoches, Texas November 9-11! This year’s event will take place at the historic Fredonia Hotel and Convention Center and will focus on conserving plants native to the Pineywoods Ecoregion of East Texas. 

Event Overview

The Fredonia Hotel and Convention Center will serve as the symposium headquarters with NPSOT group-rate lodging available. The event schedule includes a “no host” meet and greet on Thursday evening, followed by a kickoff plenary session with Matt Buckingham on Friday morning that will segue into a day of field trips around the region, followed by a Friday evening reception. Speakers and panel sessions will be held throughout the day on Saturday, and an awards banquet on Saturday night. Participants can participate in our silent auction and see vendor and exhibitor displays at the hotel. In addition, a list of suggested self-guided field trips is available for those traveling on Thursday and Sunday. This hybrid event includes a variety of registration options for in-person and virtual attendance, with in-person Society member and scholastic discounts.
