Enhance Your Days
Wellness Lounge, Sponsored by NFPA
We all know that our health and wellness should take top priority, but sometime we need a reminder, especially when traveling. Our Wellness Lounge will have running groups and yoga sessions scheduled throughout the week, along with a space that you can get away for a few minutes to relax. In addition, UM has several outdoor activities available, including bike rentals, swimming, and golf.

Workshops and Field Trips
There is still space available in the workshops, and we have a few field trip openings as well (field trips 2, 4, and 5). There is also still room on the all-day Research Burn field trip on Friday. Email us if you'd like to attend. Or you can check with Registration onsite to see what is available.

Sunday Afterhours Networking
Kick off the week by gathering with new and old friends at Brooks and Browns, Holiday Inn Downtown Missoula. We'll meet at 7pm, and they'll have a fun smoke-inspired menu just for us! (PS - this is the first of many great social events planned for the week!)
Things to Bring
  • Water bottle and/or travel mug
  • Rain gear (rain is in forecast for afternoons/evenings)
