Conference Announcement: “The Science, Practice & Art of Restoring Native Ecosystems Conference”

The Science, Practice & Art of Restoring Native Ecosystems Conference

Where: Kellogg Center in East Lansing, MI
When: Friday and Saturday, January 17 and 18, 2014

The 2014 Science, Practice & Art of Restoring Native Ecosystems conference will focus on Field and Place Based Conservation – Applying Techniques That Work at the Community Level.

Field and Place Based Conservation can make real and sustainable positive changes in our natural world. We must set the goals for our conservation actions by standards that are meaningful and significant to our local communities. Building our work around established social, cultural and economic goals makes caring for our natural resources a plan that’s easier to support, whether through time, dollars, votes, or goodwill. Furthermore, it’s by bringing together different people and multiple organizations in collaborative conservation at a local level that we facilitate the global adoption of community-based action, resulting in widespread improvement to lands and waters we all care about.
