The annual NACS Retreat is an important event that provides an opportunity for NACS faculty, students, and postdoc affiliates to come together to meet each other, stimulate cohesiveness, and build excitement for the coming year. It fosters community and provides opportunities for students and faculty to provide input and help shape the future of the program.

The 2018 NACS Retreat took place on Wednesday, August 22, at the Chesapeake Bay Foundation’s Philip Merrill Environmental Center.  The schedule for last year's Retreat appears below.
