The Eastern Field Access Council (EFAC)

The Eastern Field Access Council (EFAC) is an exciting new Field Program.  We are exploring ways in which we can preserve access to existing collecting localities and gain access to new ones.  The Council is comprised of individuals from around the Eastern Federation.


Call to Action!  How do we stop this trend of our Collecting Localities getting closed?
On Wed 2/17 @ 6:30 EST – 

“Losing Ground!”  We must turn the tide to keep ACCESS alive?
