If you would like to attend the Bay Area Conservation Biology Symposium and stay the night but would rather save the cost of a hotel, we may be able to match you with a host who has a couch or extra bed where you can stay the night free of charge. Please e-mail Erin Meyer if you would like to arrange staying with a host. 

If you prefer a hotel, Visit Berkeley has a site with available lodgings in the area.
