SETAC workshops bring together environmental professionals to advance the state of knowledge and promote resolution of technical issues to identify solutions for pressing environmental challenges. SETAC offers two distinct types of workshops: SETAC Pellston Workshops® and Technical Workshops, which are renown for the quality of their technical output. Pellston Workshops® are SETAC’s premier workshop offering, named after the location of the first workshop held in 1977 at the University of Michigan Field Station in Pellston, Michigan.
