USBN Biosphere Bites

Usbn Biosphere Bites

Join Us for Biosphere Bites!

The US Biosphere Network (USBN) hosts virtual, 30-minute “Biosphere Bites” talks every other week on ZOOM to give biosphere regions and anyone interested in collaborative conservation an opportunity to share knowledge, ideas, and resources across our national and international networks.

The biweekly Biosphere Bites virtual presentations are informal and are designed to connect the USBN to local, regional, national, and international partners and to highlight the important work that is being done in biosphere regions to improve the human connection to nature and to make progress towards sustainable development goals.

Next Up: April 10

Please join us for Crossing Boundaries: Sharing Insights and Lessons from the Canadian Biosphere Reserves Association with Kate Potter.

Past Biosphere Bites seminars:

All talks will be recorded and you can watch recordings of past Biosphere Bites on USBN’s YouTube Channel!


Have an idea for a future Biosphere Bites seminar?

The goal of USBN’s Biosphere Bites lunch-and-learn style talks is to showcase projects, initiatives, events, research, and resources across the network in a short and digestible format: a 20 minute presentation and 10 minute Q&A.

Knowledge sharing is a cornerstone of a thriving network, and we look forward to sharing the great work that Biosphere Regions and their partners are doing to improve human connection to nature. To present or propose a topic for an upcoming Biosphere Bites talk, use this form.
