Conference Overview

"NCER is dedicated to providing education, specialized training, and networking opportunities for ecological and environmental professionals working together to meet the challenges of ecosystem restoration.”

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), Chicago (2013) and Fort Lauderdale (2016). NCER brings together scientists, engineers, policy makers, planners and partners from across the country actively involved in large-scale ecosystem restoration.

NCER brings together scientists, engineers, policy makers, planners and partners from across the country actively engaged 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. Resources are tight, and we face an uncertain climate future. 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 results. Restoration increasingly engages non-traditional conservation partners, opening new doors and creating new challenges.
