Note from Storm: I was a keynote speaker at the 2nd Annual Conference on Ecosystem Restoration in Kansas City, back in 2007. It’s a wonderful, multi-disciplinary event that I highly recommend.
From the event website: The 6th National Conference on Ecosystem Restoration will take place on April 18-22, 2016 in Coral Springs, Florida
NCER is an interdisciplinary conference on large-scale ecosystem restoration presenting state-of-the art science and engineering, planning and policy in a partnership environment.
The first NCER, held in Orlando, FL (2004), lead to successful conferences in Kansas City, MO (2007), Los Angeles, CA (2009), Baltimore, MD (2011), and Chicago (2013). NCER brings together scientists, engineers, policy makers, planners and partners from across the country actively involved in large-scale ecosystem restoration.
Since its inception, NCER has become the preeminent conference on ecosystem restoration in the US. Today, we are in a new era, where resources are tight.
Renewed vigilance on the use of public funding requires that we demonstrate progress in achieving restoration goals, clearly prove its value, efficiently and effectively share lessons learned and provide better coordination among all stakeholders ensuring the best use of future funding to achieve real world results.
