This year’s theme for the Natural Areas Association's annual conference is Building Resilience: The Future of Natural Areas. Environmental change is dramatically impacting the resilience of natural areas and their ability to rebound from disturbance while maintaining biologically important features and continuing to provide fundamental support to human health. Regardless of region or type, the hope for natural areas rests on planned actions that promote resilient systems in the face of daunting environmental change.
This annual three-day event consists of symposia, oral sessions, poster presentations, social networking events, roundtables, workshops, and more. All of which is aimed at bringing cutting-edge and emerging land management strategies to natural area professionals around the country.
